“The competition gave chamber ensembles from around the world much-deserved attention and support … but unfortunately, it is not possible to maintain the financial structure needed to continue M-Prize while also supporting the University of Michigan School of Music’s own growth in chamber music and its many other disciplines …” Music School Dean David Gier has today said.

“We are profoundly grateful to U-M Office of the Provost and an anonymous donor, both of whom made it possible for the School of Music to run the competition for three inspirational years,”  he has said.
