I will be performing the Mozart Clarinet Concerto K. 622 with the Charlottesville Symphony September 23rd and 24th 2017. I’m thrilled to be performing this wonderful and important work!

My first encounter with this piece was at age 8 when I performed the second movement in the Halifax Kiwanis Music Festival. I’m really excited, many years later, to still have a relationship with this piece and to be able to play it with orchestra.
