The Cape Fear New Music Festival’s High School Composition Competition

Xylophone performance

The 2021 Cape Fear New Music Festival and High School Composition Competition will be suspended this year due to the pandemic crisis. Our ability to host live concerts and events is currently restricted due to safety protocols. Be watching for updates on this evolving situation, as we look forward to actively making music in front of audiences in the near future at MU!


We are happy to answer any questions you may have. Simply contact Dr. Keith Dippre, Director of Composition Studies/Professor of Music at Methodist University via email at
