Tacoma rocks, right? You buy local, eat local, support local businesses to make our town even better. So this Tuesday, you can hear local composers played by local musicians in a classical music series that’s one of Tacoma’s hidden gems: Classical Tuesdays in Old Town.
Completely free, this monthly series often features unusual instruments or music, and this coming Tuesday is no exception. Music from five Tacoma composers will be on the program, played by a clarinet-heavy selection of instruments. Solo clarinettist Cindy Renander plays Greg Youtz‘s “Lone Wolf,” while Lawrence Bradley plays a clarinet solo by Lawrence Ebert.
Deborah Anderson has written a clarinet quartet, and Rob Hutchinson‘s trio for clarinet, flute and marimba features Craig Rine, Pamela Ryker and Miho Takekawa. There’s a saxophone-marimba duo by Clem Reid, and a few more pieces as well.
Tacoma has some great composers, and they don’t often get a look-in on bigger programs. Thanks to the Old Town series, they’re getting the attention they deserve.
The Tacoma Composers concert is at 7 p.m. on January 12 at the Slavonian Hall, http://classicaltuesdays.blogspot.com.or more details call or visit
