Support student musicians and the string section expansion of CMU's orchestra.

José Luis Maúrtua was born in Trujillo, Peru, on December 13, 1964, and passed away in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, on May 7, 2022. He joined the faculty of Central Michigan University in 1999 where he served as Director of Orchestral Studies and Professor of Composition.

He was deeply loved by his family, friends, students, and colleagues. Long-serving as a living cultural bridge between South America and North America, he was a gifted and generous musician and educator.

Dr. Maúrtua long dreamed of expanding the string section of CMU’s orchestra through greater support for its student musicians. This scholarship will be a memorial to that vision.
