Created in Fall 2019 by Arts Everywhere and the UNC Department of Music, First Fridays is a concert series that features pop-up performances by different student and chamber ensembles on the first Friday of each month in the rotunda of Hill Hall as well as in various locations across campus. These informal concerts allow students, faculty, staff, and community members to come and go as they listened to live music of all genres and configurations. Last year’s virtual performances featured music by underrepresented voices such as Mélanie Bonis, Betty Jackson King, Robert Owens, Julia Perry, Florence Price, William Grant Still, and Chen Yi.
This year, we’re celebrating the many sights and sounds of Carolina and look forward to showcasing a wide variety of different genres and styles of music.
