“Canzona for the Music Makers” for chamber ensemble was commissioned in 2013 by the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra for the Northwest School of the Arts. The new piece was supported by a grant from the N.C. Arts Council.
Locklair worked closely with the students in preparing the piece, which has a secret stamp on the six-minute work — the school’s initials are used for a four-note theme that recurs throughout.
Carolina Impact was on-site covering Locklair working with the students. Watch the video here.
