Join us for the second-annual Compose Carolina, our summer music series produced in collaboration with Carolina Performing Arts. This weekly virtual series features the premieres of four original musical compositions ranging in genre and style, written by alumni and students of the UNC Department of Music composition program on a given theme. Our prompt for this year is “In The Now,” and can be interpreted freely by the composers, from the literal to the very metaphorical.
This summer, we welcome three new alumni composers, Trinity Vélez-Justo, Alex Van Gils, and Stewart Engart, for the debut of three diverse solo compositions, as well as a group of student composers and musicians who will re-interpret the Greek tale of Orpheus and Eurydice through their score. On Fridays in July, the livestreamed event will feature the artist(s) in conversation with a faculty moderator, the debut of their composition, and a casual “program notes” conversation and Q&A.
