2013 Winner: Musicians United of Southern Illinois Carbondale

MUSIC was founded in 2010 and seeks to bring people of all walks of life together to work on the common goal of creating great music.  These students of many colors, genders and creeds look forward to meeting at least once a week under the roof of the Jewish gathering place in Carbondale. They create an environment that serves not only as an avenue for musical achievement but also plays a small role in the effort to diminish prejudice among students on campus. Team building in an environment with individuals of many backgrounds is beneficial to students because it allows them to experience each other's musical and social capacities.
