Clarinet Cornucopia Comes to NIU


The NIU School of Music and the College of Visual and Performing Arts Office of External Programs present the annual Clarinet Cornucopia on Saturday, January 29. The event features guest clarinetist Eli Eban, professor of clarinet at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, for a special recital at 1:00 p.m. Joining Mr. Eban will be NIU School of Music piano professor William Goldenberg and NIU School of Music clarinet professor Gregory Barrett. They will perform works by Nielsen, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Winding.

Clarinet Cornucopia is a festival for clarinetists who enjoy playing and learning about their favorite instrument and its extended world. Founded in 2002, Clarinet Cornucopia focuses on a different theme each year, this year's theme being "German Romantic." Information and photographs from past Clarinet Cornucopias can be found at Gregory Barrett's website. All events take place in the Music Building on the campus of Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
