Roadkill Clarinet Quintet
“If we miss it the first time, we’ll back up and run over it again!” With a name like Roadkill, you know this group must have fun in store for audiences of all ages. The Quintet presents programs of music balanced between Classical, Ragtime, Dixieland, and Swing, ranging from Bach and Mozart and including Stephen Foster, Gershwin, Bernstein, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw and a salute to the famous New Orleans clarinetists of the past. Pieces are introduced with humorous narratives and little-known facts. Programs are tailored to fit the audience (schools, service clubs, conventions, concert series) from their repertoire of over seventy pieces. The Quintet consists of four soprano clarinets plus a bass clarinet. Members are active or retired music educators who welcome educational opportunities in combination with concert appearances.
Five armless chairs. PA (if necessary) can be provided by the artists.
