Claricello in Concert

Claricello in concert at the Red Barn here in Harbert, Michigan a few summers ago.

(South Bend, Indiana) My amazing clarinet teacher, Jason Gresl, and his equally amazing wife, cellist Lara Turner, performed a Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something . . .Blues! concert Sunday as part of the Muses’ Workshop series at the Jewish Federal of St. Joseph Valley.  Jason and Lara have performed at our Red Barn here in Harbert, so we know that they are worth a trip to South Bend, and they certainly were yesterday as they used the wedding theme to take us from a prelude of Burkhart Söll’s Dopplebecher (Double Bells) to a honeymoon with Georgina Sánchez Torres’ Reminiscences de Verbena.  Oh, and for the reception, we were treated to Morton Gould’s musical tribute to Benny Goodman.  Claricello, so you know, often perform at weddings in the greater South Bend area, and they can be contacted in care of:  And the next concert in the Muses’ Workshop Series is scheduled for Sunday, May 21 at the Jewish Federal with a glimpse into he world of woodwind instruments, through delightful music, anecdotes, and instrument demonstrations.  The concert will begin at 3 p.m. (EDT).
