The event will take place at 6:30 pm, before that evening’s Faculty Artist Recital. Alumni will gather at the Graduate Club (155 Elm Street) for a reception hosted by Dean Robert Blocker.
Guests are also invited to attend the recital, which features clarinet professor David Shifrin along with YSM alumni and students. Alumni performers include clarinetists Romie de Guise-Langlois and Thomas Masse, among others. The program will include music of Mozart, Brahms, Schumann, Ponchielli, Debussy, Poulenc, and Alan Shulman, plus the premiere of the complete version of Joan Panetti’s Lobgesang for seven clarinets, written for Keith Wilson.
The concert is free and open to the public. The pre-concert alumni reception is open only to Yale School of Music graduates and their guests; reservations are required.
