ClarinetMike Recital at TCU on Monday, January 25, 2016

Happy New Year, SOON!  I will be giving a guest artist clarinet recital at Texas Christian University (TCU) in Fort Worth, Texas on Monday evening, January 25, 2016 at 7 p.m. (This is a makeup recital for late year’s ICE STORM postponement.) Joining me on the recital will be saxophonist Joe Eckert and pianist Janet Pummill. The music we’ll be playing (see below) is very cool and loaded with smoky jazz – I’m planning to record most of it for a new CD, Postcards from Silver Lake.

Please check out and join the recital Facebook Event Page.

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