Laura Nevitt is a composer from South Carolina, and currently based in Boston. She studied composition with Dr. John Fitz Rogers at the University of South Carolina. She has had composition lessons and/or masterclasses with Libby Larsen, Dale Trumbore, Paul Lansky, Jacob Ter Veldhuis, Lee Johnson, Dominick DiOrio, Derrick Skye, and David Evan Thomas.
"Second-year music composition student and Carolina Alive member Nevitt sang the solo for her original composition "Your Music," a spellbinding piece featuring a rich choral texture, a sinuous melody and a haunting contrapuntal section. "Your Music" surpassed most of the other pieces on the program in complexity and originality, and was one of the highlights of an evening of outstanding music. Nevitt is a creative and gifted composer with a talent for vocal writing."
