Compose Carolina: Stewart Engart
Join us for the second-annual Compose Carolina, our summer music series produced in collaboration with 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.
