This will be Beo's first performance at the 2017 Charlotte New Music Festival and will feature works composed by the participants and faculty of CNMF. Located at the NoDa Brewing Company in Charlotte, some of the contemporary works will be world premieres. Additionally, Beo will feature Max Duykers' "Glass Blue Cleft" for string quartet, which was selected as the winner of the second annual Charlotte New Music and Beo String Quartet National Composition Competition. Perhaps most exciting of all, each of the composers will be present at this performance! Also included in the performance will be pieces by Craig Bove, Marc Mellits, Jenny Clinard, Xinyan Li, Tyler Waters, Logan Rutledge, and Adam Strawbridge.
