neidichBEYOND THE CLARINET
a multi-faceted clarinet master class with international renowned virtuoso, composer and conductor Charles Neidich
Wednesday, February 22, 5-8 pm  
Emerson String Quartet studio (room #3364)

Internationally renowned clarinetist Charles Neidich will bring to our Graduate Department’s clarinet and wind students his considerable gifts as one of the finest clarinetists and musical thinkers in the world today. Though the class will be organized in a master class format, Mr. Neidich will apply not only his extreme knowledge of the instrument and his exceptional teaching, but a highly educational and historical context to repertoire presented as well as a scholarly approach to music making for clarinetists. This will no doubt be a fascinating and inspiring class for wind players and for all musicians and audience alike.
