In Studio A with clarinetist Jeanmarie Riccobono

Oct 9, 2018

Jeanmarie Riccobono is the principal clarinetist in the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. She also teaches clarinet at Northwestern Michigan College and the Bay View Music Festival.

She'll be the soloist this weekend in Aaron Copland's Clarinet Concerto with the Traverse Symphony Orchestra.

Riccobono visited IPR’s Studio A for a performance and conversation. She performed the first movement of the Copland concerto with collaborative pianist Susan Snyder. Riccobono also talked with IPR about the "endurance factor" required to play the Copland concerto and why it can be tricky finding a place to practice when every member of the family is also a musician.

Listen to the entire performance and conversation below.
