The Springfield Music Lecture at Rhodes College was established in 1991 by a bequest from the late John Murry Springfield, a 1951 Rhodes graduate. Each year an outstanding musicologist, researcher, music historian or music theorist presents both formal and informal lectures that foster an increased appreciation of music as an academic discipline.
