Virtuoso of the clarinet Nov. 12

November 8, 2013

The Virtuoso Series Concerts give the Colorado State and Fort Collins communities the opportunity to hear world-class musicians. A concert featuring clarinetist Jun Qian will be held in the 4,500 square foot Organ Recital Hall, a venue that has been described as intimate and beautifully serene.

Qian's playing is 'warm and intelligent,' says composer Michael Colgrass.Tuesday, November 12

Special guest Jun Qian, Clarinet, and Kae Hosoda-Ayer, Piano, will perform at Colorado State in a Virtuoso Series Concert.

Principal clarinetist, teacher

Chinese-born American clarinetist Jun Qian joined the music faculty at Baylor University in 2012, when he was also appointed principal clarinetist of the Waco Symphony.

He has taught at several universities, including St. Olaf College, and the Eastman School of Music and has performed worldwide with the Shanghai Philharmonic Orchestra.

Currently, he is working on a solo CD project at the Minnesota Public Radio Station, entitled East Meet West. This CD will be the first professional recording of music for clarinet and piano by well-known Chinese composers.

"Jun Qian is a rare performer—an excellent technician who also has the warmth and intelligence of a mature interpreter.”

~ Michael Colgrass, composer
