Professor Performs in Ireland

Jesse Krebs, associate professor of music, performed a guest clarinet recital at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin, Ireland, Oct. 13.

Krebs performed a program of all American clarinet works, including the “Clarinet Sonata” by Daniel Gregory Mason, “Theme” and “Absurdities” by Derek Bermel and “Grooves” by Philip Parker. He also taught a guest master class for some of the clarinet students who were from South Africa, Iran, Switzerland and Ireland. Perhaps the highlight of the trip was having the unexpected opportunity to sit-in with Celtic musicians during their performance in a Dublin pub.

The trip was made possible thanks to a mini-grant from the School of Arts and Letters.
