Charlotte New Music Festival invites musicians and composers to perform their music in a fun, casual setting. Whether it’s performing a previously written work, exploring something new and unusual, or an improvisation, sign up now and share your creativity.
Charlotte New Music Festival is proud to present to you the Red Clay Saxophone Quartet during this June’s concert series. Red Clay will perform new music, including a piece that won the recent 2017 CNMF & Red Clay National Composition Competition, “Urban Composites” by Erin Rogers. All composers will be in attendance.
Red Clay Sax Quartet was formed in 2003 when the fates conspired to bring four internationally recognized saxophonists (Susan Fancher, Robert Faub, Steven Stusek and Mark Engebretson) together in Greensboro, North Carolina. The RCSQ takes its name from the area’s luscious red soil. The Quartet presents a varied repertoire from classical to jazz to new music to tango, featuring music by composers such as Ben Johnston, György Ligeti, Chick Corea, Perry Goldstein, Francis Poulenc, Alejandro Rutty, Ben Boone, Steve Reich, Mark Engebretson, Martin Bresnick, Burton Beerman and Gavin Bryars. Red Clay offers a variety of concert programs, including Sax Appeal, French Connections, Composers of the Carolinas, Never Too Tango and Tikvah.
The Charlotte New Music Festival invites you to join us for a concert featuring performances by the Beo String Quartet from Pittsburgh, PA.
Beo String Quartet will be performing new works by guest artists at the Charlotte New Music Festival.
