Schedule for OU Clarinet Symposium Next Week!

ClarinetFest2013

After a two year break, the University of Oklahoma Clarinet Symposium will return next week, June 13-15, 2013!

Some of my fondest clarinet memories were at OU Symposium’s of the past. I remember hearing Harold Wright perform and teach a master class. Over the years, I attended recitals, master classes and more from the likes of Richard Stoltzman, Gary Foster, Mitchell Lurie, Michele Zukovsky, Alessandro Carbonare, Eddie Daniels, Pedro Rubio, and so many other clarinet stars, I can’t recall them all!

This year features another great program – see below. Information on registration, lodging, etc. is available HERE.
