Compose Carolina: Summer Music Series

Musicians from the Department of music play their cellos during the Spectrum Concert. In the background, a choir stands side-by-side, singing.

Join us for the second-annual Compose Carolina, a summer music series produced by Carolina Performing Arts and the UNC Department of Music.

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,” to 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.

Please note: you must register for each event in this series separately. Register now on the Carolina Performing Arts website.
