Small Island Big Song

NC State LIVE Residency | April 8-12, 2024

Small Island Big Song is in residence with NC State LIVE for a week of events from April 8-12. This collective of Indigenous musicians come from island nations in the Pacific and Indian Oceans – Taiwan, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Madagascar, Mauritius, Easter Island (Chile) – where they are on the front lines of climate change. The Small Island Big Song musicians have come together with filmmakers, oceanographers, scientists, and artists to create a week of extraordinary events. The residency will come to a celebratory close with a concert by Small Island Big Song in Stewart Theatre on Friday, April 12th at 7:30pm. 

Bonus Event: Solar Eclipse Viewing 2:30pm on April 8.

View the solar eclipse on Monday, April 8 with artists from Small Island Big Song. Before the University Honors Forum, we’ll meet in front of Witherspoon at 2:30pm with eclipse glasses, while supplies last!
