JOHNSON CITY (March 19, 2013) – “Postcards: A Musical Journey,” a Guest Artist Recital featuring clarinetist Dr. Gary Lamond Fair, will be held at East Tennessee State University Saturday, March 23, at 7:30 p.m. in the Mathes Hall Auditorium.
This double-reed recital will “take the audience on a musical journey across time and distant lands, from 17th century Italy to 21st century New Zealand,” according to the ETSU Department of Music. The program includes works by Bohuslav Martinů, Arcangelo Corelli, Michael J. Burns, Astor Piazzolla and Johann Wenzel Kalliwoda.
Fair is an in-demand clarinet soloist and teacher currently based in San Antonio.
Fair will be joined in this performance by ETSU faculty artists Heather Killmeyer on oboe and bassoon and Jerilyn Paolini on piano, as well as guest oboist Larry Mueller, former principal oboist of the Corpus Christi (Texas) Symphony.
Earlier that day, Fair will perform a solo recital, accompanied by Paolini, at 10 a.m. in the Mathes Hall Auditorium. Following the performance will be a clarinet master class for ETSU clarinet students and other musicians from throughout the area. Participants will receive instruction on technique and tone production, as well as issues specific to their repertoire.
Both morning and evening recitals are free and open to the public.
