Legendary Clarinetist Richard Stoltzman in Residence With YOSA


Richard Stoltzman is a legendary musician, winning Grammy Awards, playing chamber music, new music and concerti around the world. He's also famous for his jazz, playing with greats like Woody Herman, Mel Torme, and Chick Corea. This weekend, Stoltzman will share his artistry with the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio Philharmonic.

"I'm not one of those guys who is always looking at clarinets, bells, and barrels. Where the music comes from and where the sound comes from, are really two different things; your soul makes the music ultimately."

Stoltzman will play two works, Bernstein's West Side Variants and selections from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Troy Peters will also conduct Howard Hanson's Romantic Symphony and Jennifer Higdon's blue cathedral. Concert is Monday, November 5th at 7:30pm at the Majestic Theatre.

A masterclass, free and open to the public, takes place Sunday, November 4th at 6pm in the Fine Arts Department at UTSA.
