I am honored to have been selected to perform at the 2019 Music By Women Festival, hosted by the Mississippi University for Women from March 7-9 of next year. Founded by Dr. Julia Mortyakova, this is the festival’s third year presenting music composed by women composers past and present.
I’ll be performing a solo clarinet set including Sonorous Body by Liza Lim and a new piece that Ania Sundstrom is writing for me.
Figmentum has also been selected, and we’ll be playing new pieces by Niloufar Iravani and Kari Besharse, as well as Ania’s Another to Echo, part of our repertoire last season.
I’ll post more information her about specific dates and times as they are available. In the meantime, I think I’ll start doing some spotlight posts on clarinet solo pieces by women. This was a blind spot of mine in my training, and I’ve been determined to correct it, and hopefully this will be a resource for other clarinetists and teachers to diversify their own repertoire.
