DEREK BERMEL'S "VOICES" RETURNS TO NEW YORK CITY
Bermel Performs Clarinet Concerto with Mannes Orchestra
Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center - New York City
On Monday evening, February 25 at 8 PM, composer-clarinetist Derek Bermel takes the stage at Alice Tully Hall when the Mannes Orchestra performs Voices, his highly-praised clarinet concerto. Unheard in New York since its critically-acclaimed 1998 World Premiere, the work was co-commissioned by the American Composers Orchestra and Boston Modern Orchestra Project, premiered by ACO at Carnegie Hall, and recorded by BMOP on a Grammy-nominated disc for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance (with orchestra). Bermel's performance is in conjunction with his spring term at Mannes, where he serves as composer-in-residence. His residency is unique, as he occupies a central role at the school, working with the entire student population to explore composition, improvisation, and composer collaborations, along with the performance of new music, regardless of style or genre.
Voices reflects Bermel's deep engagement with other musical cultures, which has become part of the fabric and force of his compositional language and where the human voice and its myriad inflections play a primary role. Voices explores the clarinet and the orchestra through a multitude of techniques. The first movement, "Id", evokes sounds of shouting, laughing, and mumbling; the second movement, "She Moved Thru the Fair," is haunted by the sounds, inflections, and gestures of Irish folk music; and the finale, "Jamm on Toast," features vocal techniques more commonly associated with funk and big-band music.

NOTE: THE DEADLINE FOR RECORDED AUDITIONS FOR THE OHIO UNIVERSITY HONORS CLARINET CHOIR HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO FEBRUARY 15, 2013.
THE HONORS CLARINET CHOIR IS NOW OPEN TO COLLEGE UNDERGRADUATES AS WELL AS HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS GRADES 10-12.
The 2013 Ohio University Honors Clarinet Choir, under the leadership of Dr. Rebecca Rischin, Professor of Clarinet, will rehearse and perform at Ohio University's Clarinet Gala on Saturday, March 23, 2013 in conjunction with the Ohio University Flute Fest and Honors Flute Choir, directed by Alison Brown Sincoff, Associate Professor of Flute. The purpose is to give talented high school and college undergraduate clarinetists the opportunity to perform excellent repertoire in a highly select group under the leadership of Dr. Rischin and visiting artist Jane Carl, Professors of Clarinet at the University of Missouri Kansas City Conservatory of Music. An additional aim is also to provide the opportunity for talented high school and college undergraduate clarinetists to visit the OU campus and experience the unique opportunities available to them as OU students. Another benefit is that students in the Honors Clarinet Choir will have the opportunity to rehearse and perform with talented Ohio University college clarinetists.
High school clarinetists in grades 10-12 and college undergraduates are eligible to audition. The Honors Clarinet Choir will comprise approximately 12-20 clarinetists selected competitively from live and recorded auditions.

All events will take place on Saturday, March 23, 2013 in Ohio University's Robert Glidden Hall, the School of Music.

Application/Audition Fee/Participant Fee
High school students (grades 10-12) and college undergraduates interested in auditioning live for the Ohio University Honors Clarinet Choir must complete an application form and submit at $5 check payable to the Ohio University School of Music to be mailed and received by 3 days before the audition date selected. Please do not send cash. If accepted into the Honors Clarinet Choir, students interested in participating must submit a modest fee of $40, again, in the form of a check made payable to the Ohio University School of Music. This fee will include the pizza party and a festival t-shirt. Following receipt of the application form and $5 fee, audition times will be sent via email by the day before the audition date selected. Every effort will be made to accommodate requested audition times, but the earliest applications will receive preference.
Students unable to take a live audition are encouraged to submit a compact disc with their application with the required selections (see "Audition Information" below). Each selection should not be edited or spliced, but performed continuously. Please clearly mark the recording with the student's name, grade, school, email address, phone number, and ordered titles of selections including composer, title of piece, and title of movement, if applicable. Indicate on what type of auxiliary instrument selections are performed if applicable. The application and compact disc must be received by February 15, 2013.
High school clarinetists should play a portion of a prepared solo or etude that demonstrates both lyrical and technical ability (approximately 3 minutes), and a 2-octave chromatic scale (3-octaves is preferable) beginning on a note of the student's choice (eighth-notes at quarter-note=120, slurred ascending, staccato descending). A solo for the class A list from the OMEA contest list is recommended. Sight reading may be asked. College undergraduates should perform a portion of a standard concerto or sonata (such as Mozart, Weber, or Brahms, approximately 3 minutes) that demonstrates both lyrical and technical ability, as well as a portion of a twentieth century work (approximately 3 minutes). Sight reading may be asked. Students are also encouraged to audition on the auxiliary instruments (Bass clarinet, Eb clarinet, Alto clarinet, Contra-alto clarinet, Contra-bass clarinet). Audition requirements for the auxiliary instruments are the same as for the Bb clarinet. Auditions will be led by Dr. Rischin, Prof. Sincoff, and Dr. Andrew Trachsel, Director of Bands at Ohio University.
Audition results for both live and recorded auditions will be emailed to students by February 17, 2013. Students accepted who would like to participate in the Honors Clarinet Choir must submit their acceptance form and $40 fee by Feb 20, 2013. Upon receipt of the acceptance form and fee, Prof. Rischin will send the music and additional information to home addresses by Mar 1, 2013.

Rice University Premiere Recital with Richie Hawley and Richard Nunemaker
Benny, Zoot, and Teddy (Play Richard and Lorenz)
Benny, Zoot, and Teddy (Play Richard and Lorenz) was written as a commission from Richard Nunemaker, to perform with Richie Hawley and Brian Connelly. I immediately thought of them as representatives of iconic jazzmen of the past – Benny Goodman, Zoot Sims, and Teddy Wilson, and wondered what a jam session between the three of them might sound like. I then conceived a set wherein they explored the music of Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart. Of course, the whole idea was then chopped, mixed, strained, and puréed into my own macaronic language, not to mention putting a bass clarinet into the figurative hands of Zoot the tenor saxophonist. The result is a roller-coaster ride of unbridled virtuosity, split-second ensemble work, and, hopefully, fun.
