Fall 2019 Concert Calendar Posted
Before we know it, the leaves will be turning and we will be starting up the bonfires here in North Carolina. Autumn is coming! This Fall features many exciting shows, including engagements with Latitude 49 in Tennessee and New Jersey, F-PLUS in North Carolina and St. Louis, The Grossman Ensemble in Chicago, and the Winston-Salem Symphony for "The Rite of Spring." Ritual Action will present a program in Chicago in October, and UNCG will host Clarinet Day in November, featuring guest artist and composer Eric Mandat, whom we will also celebrate with a portrait concert. I will head to Charleston in August to work with and perform for some amazing High school and Middle School students, and will collaborate with EIGHT of my amazing UNCG colleagues on a chamber recital in September. These and more will define an exciting Fall season!
I hope to see you at a show! Come say hello afterwards, and let's get some nachos. Check out the full calendar over on the shows page.
New Video: "Brooklyn Bridge" with the UNCG Wind Ensemble
If you missed February's performance of Michael Daugherty's "Brooklyn Bridge" at UNCG, you're in luck. A video of that performance has been posted! Congrats to the amazing UNCG Wind Ensemble on their terrific performance, and many thanks to my esteemed colleague Kevin Geraldi for the invitation and his incredible work to put the performance together!
North Carolina ICA State Chair
I am delighted to announce that I recently accepted an appointment as the North Carolina State Chair for the International Clarinet Association! I am so thankful for the good work the ICA is doing in our field, and I'm excited to partner with this venerable organization to bring together clarinetists of all stripes here in NC. The best is yet to come!
