Clarinets for Conservation teaches students in Tanzania about music, their local ecosystems, and also helps them plant trees. Michele Von Haugg, founder and director of Clarinets for Conservation, will perform at the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts on Saturday, April 13.
On Saturday, April 13, Von Haugg will bring the message of Clarinets for Conservation to the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts in a performance that will include information on the organization accompanied by a clarinet recital.
The pieces will include some traditional pieces as well as contemporary pieces, including an arrangement of the Tanzanian National Anthem, written by Brett Wery from Schenectady Community College, and a challenging piece by American composer Eric Mandat that requires circular breathing.
NCCCA Executive Director Janine Scherline will be joining Von Haugg in performing a couple pieces in the program.
