But if you are fine with everything to go and visit these unusually enriching events happening within the cultural city of Charlotte.

The 11th CAW has borrowed inspiration from the American pianist and music composer Earl Wentz who is renowned for his conception of the American Composer Series within the cabaret genre and being a part of the touring team of Doraine and Ellis. Born in Charlotte, NC Wentz initiated his career as a pianist at the tender age of 12 and by 15 evolved as a recitalist, filmmaker, composer, arranger and teacher. He has guest appearances with famous singers like Nashville, Charleston, Glen Miller and has played at notable venues including the United Nations.
