So, If you happen to be in Texas near Angelo State University this Tuesday night, you really should go hear the amazing Mr. Bonenfant. The concert is going to be fantastic & it will include him playing my solo clarinet piece “the Evening News”. This virtuoso solo clarinet piece, was written for him in 1989 and Tim is playing it as part of his evening concert @ Angelo State University, at 7:30 p.m. at EBRH. Just so you know, he is a great friend and an even greater musician, we went to Cal Arts together back in the day. Tim is currently Associate Professor of Clarinet/Saxophone at Angelo State University, where he also directs the Angelo State University Jazz Ensemble, clarinet choir and saxophone quartet. He is a member of the Mesquite Trio, the Tempest Trio (soprano, clarinet and piano specializing in music by women composers), the San Angelo Symphony Orchestra, and the West Texas Jazz Orchestra. He holds degrees from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and California Institute of the Arts.
Here is a link to a recording of the piece, available for digital download from Amazon.com
