Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series with Alumnus Christian Cail

Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series logo

UNC Department of Music and Carolina Performing Arts co-host Compose Carolina, a weekly livestream concert series highlighting UNC 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 Facebook, YouTube, and #CPAathome

This week, alumnus Christian Cail debuts his yet-to-be-named composition. Cail is a guitarist, improviser, and composer from Mount Airy, North Carolina. In high school he attended UNC School of Arts for classical guitar and took an interest in both music composition and philosophy. At UNC Chapel Hill, he studied music composition and history. He is influenced by many styles and types of music, but has a particular love for jazz, 20th century classical music, and noise music. Outside of his musical endeavors Christian spends most of his time studying political economy, 20th century history, and Marxism. He works at School of Rock Chapel Hill as a music teacher and is the chair of communications at Cosmonaut Magazine.
