The Center congratulates Dr. Ivan Elezovic, the recipient of a 2015 Mississippi Arts Commission Fellowship. These highly competitive awards provide grants up to $5,000 for the creation of new work and/or professional development by the recipient. Fellowship applications are reviewed through a blind process with criteria focused on originality and vision of the work, technical skill and mastery of the artistic discipline and technique used to create the work. Dr. Elezovic's work was described as pushing "the boundaries of musical composition." It was also characterized as innovative and technically strong.
Dr. Elezovic is an assistant professor and coordinator of theory and composition in the Department of Music at Jackson State University. An active participant in the scholarly and artistic life of Jackson State and the City of Jackson, Elezovic has composed music that has been performed locally, nationally and internationally. In 2013, the Center for University Scholars awarded him a University Scholars grant for which he composed "The Wind Was There," which was performed by renown clarinetist Milan Milosevic of Vancouver College.
Jackson State University is designated as a "high research activity" institution by the Carnegie Foundation.
