ClarinetMike in Italy 2017!

ClarinetMike in the medieval town of Vipiteno, Italy, home of the Orfeo Music Festival.

Later this week I’m off to Europe! As previously posted, I’m returning this summer as Clarinet Artist in Residence at the international Orfeo Music Festival in the beautiful medieval town of Vipiteno, Italy in the heart of the Italian Alps. AND, this summer, Mrs. ClarinetMike will be going with me as we celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary! In addition to Vipiteno, Italy, we will spend a few days in Munich, Germany and then 4 days in Rome!! Below is the itinerary, the works that I’ll be performing at Orfeo, and a video clip from last year.
