GREENVILLE, S.C. (May 21, 2024) – The Bob Jones University Division of Music is pleased to announce the appointment of Christopher Enloe to its music theory and composition faculty, effective August 6.

Enloe has been named assistant professor in the Department of Music Theory and Technology. He is currently pursuing a DMA in Composition and MM in Music Theory Pedagogy at The Peabody Institute of The Johns Hopkins University, where he studies under Pulitzer- and Grammy-winning composer Kevin Puts.

“Christopher Enloe combines award-winning talent as a composer with a fresh and inviting pedagogical approach to music theory,” said Michael Moore, chair of the Division of Music. “His passion for empowering young composers to develop their voices for the cause of Christ is inspiring, and we can’t wait to welcome him to our Music at BJU community in the fall.”

“It’s an honor to join the extraordinary music faculty at BJU,” said Enloe. “In my undergraduate years, the mentorship that I received from believing professors made a profound and life-changing impact, demonstrating how to unify my faith and my artistic vocation. I joyfully anticipate providing the same kind of mentorship to the students at BJU as they pursue excellent artistry for the glory of Christ.”

Enloe’s works have been performed in concerts and festivals across the United States and Europe. His collaborators include a diverse array of ensembles and soloists, including the Polish Chamber Choir, O/Modernt Chamber Orchestra, Peabody Symphony Orchestra, violist Nadia Sirota, soprano Ah Young Hong, Ensemble Tacet(i), and Avenue Azure (Ensemble Klang). In the summer of 2023, he served as the Baltimore Symphony’s advising composer and discussion panelist for their “AI in A Minor” concert.

Recent awards for his compositions include a BMI Composer Award (2023), the 2025 AGO Pogorzelski-Yankee Award (2023), the O/Modernt Composition Award (2023), Musica Sacra Nova (Second Prize, 2023), an AGO Student Commission (2022), and the John Ness Beck Foundation Award (2019). In masterclasses and workshops, Enloe has received mentorship from composers Oscar Bettison, Felipe Lara, Dan Forrest, Howard Helvey, Libby Larsen, Steven Sametz, and Samuel Adler. He participated in the ACDA Choral Composition Masterclass (2017) and the John Ness Beck Choral Composer’s Workshop (2019).

Enloe also works remotely as an assistant to award-winning film composer Grant Fonda, providing music to clients including Paramount+, FOX Sports, and Amazon. He has also served as Director of Music Ministry for Baltimore Bible Church and Valley Presbyterian Church.

He holds an MM in Composition from Peabody Conservatory, studying under Michael Hersch, and a BM in Composition from The Master’s University. During his high school and undergraduate education, Enloe studied with composers Kevin Memley, Walter Saul, and Grant Fonda.
