Clarinet Choir Performs at Conference

The Truman Clarinet Choir recently had the honor of performing a concert at the 2016 International Clarinet Association’s ClarinetFest Conference in Lawrence, Kan., as one of 10 invited university ensembles.

Eleven hundred clarinetists from around the world attended the conference, which took place Aug. 4-7 on the campus of the University of Kansas. Truman students were able to hear world-class recitals, learn from the best pedagogues in master classes and visit six different rooms of equipment and music vendors. Their performance, which took place on the final day of the conference, included Shostakovich’s Polka from “The Golden Age,” Teng’s “Hymn of Acxiom” (arranged by Truman student Kyle Rieger) and Ciesla’s “Klezmer Suite.”

The participating students included: Michaela Anderson, Joelle Beusterien, Timothy Clasby, Laura Cleaver, Christina Daud, Katie Davis, Meranda Dooley, Zoe Frantom, Thomas Goodman, Destiny Herndon, Cory Hogan, Carolyn Jennings, Taeyeong Jung, Jonathon Kroeger, J. Alexander Lynn, Brianna Mann, Andrea Otte, Kyle Rieger, Abby Sherman, Kelle Sutton, Josh Van Norman, Andrew Wolf and percussionist Victoria Hosler.

Future ClarinetFest conferences will take place in Orlando, Fla., in 2017 and Ostend, Belgium, in 2018.
