Carolina Creates Music provides opportunities and resources for student musicians to grow and express their extraordinary talents. We're dedicated to helping student musicians of every musical style, whether they aspire to a career in music or enjoy creating music as a hobby. Carolina Creates Music has established many initiative to this end, including organizing weekly concerts and jam sessions around campus, initiating relationships with local venues, and providing photography/videography and on-campus practice space for student musicians. Singer-songwriter contests, Puppies & Jazz in the Pit, and our Forest Theater concert are just some the many projects we organize on a daily basis to promote our amazing musical culture in Chapel Hill.
