I’m off to the second edition of the Charlotte New Music Festival tomorrow, though it’s already half over. I’ll give two lectures and teach a few scads of lessons.
CNMF is the tireless work of Elizabeth Kowalski, a Charlotte-based composer with some serious organizational skills. She has created a monster out of seemingly nothing. You can read the feature article (from the Charlotte Observer) about this festival and her work on it here.
For my part, I’m happy to be chipping in with my colleagues John Allemeier, Armando Bayolo, Craig Bove, Mark Engebretson and Ronald Parks. We’ll do everything we can to make the festival proud.
