While in residence, Charlie composed and recorded songs available for the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine’s use and released by Destiny Records. Songs were inspired by Charlie's experience in residence at LSU Vet Med including within the Veterinary Teaching Hospital and Stephenson Pet Clinic.

Charlie has interacted with the LSU Vet Med community and drew creative inspiration from encounters that make up the day-to-day work of LSU Vet Med. These experiences influenced the music he wrote. He also collaborated with members of the LSU A Capella Choir on musical compositions and performances.

"We are very excited to join forces with our colleagues in the College of Music and Dramatic Arts to showcase facets of LSU Vet Med's missions to teach, heal, discover, and protect for the greater Baton Rouge community. All are welcome to our free concert, and we especially look forward to seeing our wonderful clients, our referring veterinarians, and their clients, as well," said Sarr, who manages the Artist-in-Residence Program.
