GREENCASTLE, Ind. (AP) — A Chicago couple is giving $15 million to DePauw University toward a plan for better preparing musicians to market themselves and reach broader audiences.
Judson and Joyce Green are both graduates of the private university in the central Indiana city of Greencastle. The donation announced Friday follows another $15 million gift they made in 2007 toward construction of DePauw's current music school building.
DePauw officials say the school's 21st Century Musician Initiative aims to give student musicians more training in business skills, audience development and entrepreneurship so they can adapt in a rapidly changing music industry.
Judson Green was an executive with The Walt Disney Co. and later was CEO of Chicago-based electronic mapping company Navteq Corp.
