Compose Carolina: “Moments Original Score” by Cristina “Trinity” Vélez-Justo
Join Carolina Performing Arts for the second-annual Compose Carolina, their 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. The prompt for this year is “In The Now,” to be interpreted freely by the composers, from the literal to the very metaphorical.
