Now in its third season, Conversations in Modern Music is funded by the Jaroslav F. and Barbara S. Hulka Fund for Music in the Chapel Hill community. This series endeavors to enhance the musical interests of an informed community audience by bringing performers, composers, and music historians with an expertise in new music to UNC. Concerts will be paired with a public lecture or open rehearsal in order to provide community audiences with opportunities to engage with composers and performers about the ideas that inform their music. We especially invite members of our Chapel Hill and greater Triangle communities to join us as we explore the language of contemporary music by engaging some its most creative practitioners. This year’s series details to come.
