Michael Dean Clarinet Recital at TCU on Monday, February 23, 2015

Happy New Year! FYI, I will be giving a guest artist recital at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth on Monday evening, February 23, 2015. Joining me on the recital will be saxophonist Joe Eckert and pianist Janet Pummill. The music we’ll be playing is very cool and loaded with smoky jazz – I’m planning to record most of it this summer for a new CD.

Please check out and join the recital Facebook Event Page.

ClarinetMike says, “Come hear cool new music for FREE!”
