Recently, Peck School of the Arts students had the opportunity to participate in a masterclass by four-time grammy nominee and award-winning composer Patrice Rushen while she was in town for the Milwaukee Urban League’s Black & White Ball. Rushen is not only an accomplished musician, but a remarkable and inspiring educator as well. Rachel Stanton, a versatile voice major at UWM, described it as a “once-in-a-college experience,” and Grayson Berger, a music education major, spoke about applying the things he learned to his own exploration. Peck School of the Arts is proud to offer unique and fulfilling experiences to students that allow them to meet professionals working in their field of study.
