Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series logo

Alex McKeveny is a double major in music and business administration. He plays trumpet in the UNC Wind Ensemble as well as classical piano. He is a composer of classical music and recently won the Thelma Thompson Composition Award.

The theme of Looking Forward was an invitation for me to examine my thoughts and feelings about the future, scared and excited for a changed world. An Introduction and Rondo to What Lies Ahead is the result of this examination. The different sections of the piece explore the myriad and conflicting emotions of apprehension and anticipation I feel as I look forward with the hope of a better tomorrow.


Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series

UNC Department of Music and Carolina Performing Arts are thrilled to co-host Compose Carolina, a weekly livestream concert series highlighting UNC Music’s composition student and alumni musicians’ original compositions, with conversations led by UNC Department of Music faculty members.

Each week, we’ll welcome a new Carolina composer, including alumni Eliana Fishbeyn, Noah Balamucki, and Christian Cail and students David Green, Alex McKeveny, and James Larkins, who will explore the theme “Looking Forward”—from the literal to the metaphorical—through an original musical piece and performance. They’ll be joined in conversation by UNC Department of Music professors Allen Anderson, Stephen Anderson, and Lee Weisert.

Streaming from FacebookYouTube, and #CPAathome!
