Mount Union Clarinet Trio to Perform November 14

April 15, 2010

The Mount Union Clarinet Trio will perform on Sunday, November 14 at 7:30 p.m. in Presser Recital Hall, located in Cope Music Hall.


The Mount Union College Clarinet Trio first appeared together in October 1998 in a performance of the Beethoven Trio, Op. 11. After deciding in 2002 to explore other major works in the repertoire for the combination of clarinet, cello and piano, they have performed an annual autumn recital at the College. Their annual performances include one major trio work and repertoire for piano solo, clarinet and piano, and cello and piano.

The Clarinet Trio is comprised of Dr. Elaine Anderson, assistant professor of music at Mount Union; Dr. James Perone, associate professor of music at Mount Union; and Kathy Reichenberger, faculty accompanist at Mount Union.

Anderson earned a bachelor's degree from Concordia College in Moorhead, Minnesota, a master's degree from the Manhattan School of Music and a doctorate degree from the University of Alabama. She is a member of the Brevard Music Center summer artist faculty in North Carolina, where she teaches private cello students and serves in other capacities as a member of the Brevard Music Center Orchestra.

Perone earned his bachelor's degree from Capital University and his master's degree and PhD from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He is active as an author and is completing editorial work on his latest book, 'Woodstock: An Encyclopedia of the Arts and Music Fair' for January 2005 publication by Greenwood Press.

Reichenberger earned a bachelor's degree from Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri and a master's degree from the University of Akron. She is an active music educator and also accompanies the Touring Ensemble of the Summit Choral Society in Akron where she has collaborated with her daughters, Rachel and Robin, for the past nine years.

The Clarinet Trio will perform works by Norman Dello Joio, Zoltan Kodaly, Gabriel Pierne and Robert Muczynski.
