Bove is the chair for the music and dance departments at Central Piedmont Community College where he teaches music theory, music history and composition.

He describes his music as “evolving from repetition and overlapping of cycles of events at various structural levels into what now could be described broadly as a pairing of poetic and prosaic, regularly and irregularly recurring events and the rigorously controlled and the freely conceived.” Bove has written for orchestra, various combinations of chamber groups and vocal ensembles.

Allemeier teaches composition and music theory at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. HIs music has been described as having a “sweet sense of mystery” by Fanfare and as being “rapturous” by the American Record Guide.
