University of Missouri-Kansas City alumnus Narong Prangcharoen recently received a Guggenheim Fellowship. Prangcharoen, a composer, graduated from the Conservatory of Music and Dance with a Doctor of Music Arts degree in 2010.

He – and local photographer Mike Sinclair – were interviewed for a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Up to Date. They were two Kansas City artists recently named as Guggenheim Fellows.

Prangcharoen teaches at the Conservatory’s Academy, which functions as a division within the Conservatory, providing non-credit preparatory performing arts education and community engagement programs for local children and adults.

Prangcharoen joins all four of UMKC’s Composition faculty as a Guggenheim Fellow: James Mobberley (1992), Zhou Long (1994), Chen Yi (1996), and Paul Rudy (2008).

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
