MSU Professor of Music, Rosângela Sebba, has been awarded a grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission (MAC). This grant is a portion of the $1.61 million in grants the Commission awarded in 2015-2016 and will be used to develop her performance of twentieth and twenty-first century works for piano.
The grants are made possible by continued funding from the Mississippi State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Established in 1968, the Mississippi Arts Commission is funded by the Mississippi Legislature, the National Endowment for the Arts, the Mississippi Endowment for the Arts at the Community Foundation of Greater Jackson and other private sources. The agency serves as an active supporter and promoter of arts in community life and in arts education.
