Morning String Student Workshop Update
Dr. Robert Gillespie retired from The Ohio State University School of Music in the spring of 2020 following a long and distinguished career in higher education. With his retirement also comes the retirement of the Morning String Student Workshop (MSSW), a summer program that served thousands of young string musicians over the years. Thank you, Dr. Gillespie, for inspiring generations of string musicians through MSSW and best wishes for a joy-filled retirement!
