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.
This week, alumna Eliana Fishbeyn kicks off the series with her work “Quiet Resistance,” played by a big band ensemble at the Manhattan School of Music, where the composer is earning her Master of Music degree in jazz composition. She’ll be in conversation with Professor Stephen Anderson of the Department of Music after the performance.
