Duo Entre-Nous, clarinet and saxophone
Tuesday, November 12, 2019,
11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.,
The Arizona Senior Academy Building
The Arizona Senior Academy is delighted to welcome once again clarinetist Jackie Glazier and saxophonist Don-Paul Kahl, advocates of contemporary and modern music who perform together as Duo Entre-Nous. In this, the duo’s second visit to the ASA, they will perform five pieces composed this year by five composers under 45 years of age. As we discovered at their last appearance, the program promises to intrigue us with novel and sometimes whimsical colors of sound.
Duo Entre-Nous is dedicated to the progress of music, and has performed throughout the U.S. and Europe, commissioning pieces from composers hailing from five continents. Kahl and Glazier are also devoted to music education, giving master classes and lectures at universities throughout the U.S.
An Assistant Professor of Clarinet at the University of Arizona’s Fred Fox School of Music since 2016, Jackie Glazier has performed as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the U.S. and in Mexico and Europe. She is principal clarinet of the Grammy Award-nominated True Concord Voices & Orchestra, a Tucson-based ensemble. She gives frequent master classes and has received numerous awards and prizes, such as first prize in the International Clarinet Association Orchestral Competition at ClarinetFest in 2014.
Concert saxophonist Don-Paul Kahl has performed throughout Europe, the United States, Australia, and South-East Asia. He has been involved in the creation and performance of over 75 new works for saxophone. Currently, he lives and works as a freelance saxophonist based in Belgium and is also a doctoral candidate for a Ph.D in Artistic Research at the Orpheus Institute in Ghent. He holds a Master of Music degree from the University of Florida and a Bachelor of Music degree from Susquehanna University.
