Green Valley (AZ) News: “Clarinetist Douglas Monroe gave a beautiful performance of Weber‟s „Concerto No. 2 for Clarinet,‟ its „Recitative and ala Polacca.‟ Monroe was flawless in his technique, impeccable in his intonation, and dramatic in his interpretation.” Richmond (VA) Times-Dispatch: “(The Soldier‟s Tale) was a wry delight..” Lancaster (OH) Eagle-Gazette: “In one word, it was inspiring.” (performance of Krommer Concerto for Two Clarinets in Eb by Douglas Monroe and James Heffernan) Flint (MI) Herald: “…lively clarinet soloist for „Polacca from Concerto No. 2‟ (Carl Maria von Weber). His light woodwind passages were accented with fluid runs that won firm crowd approval.” Lima (OH) News: “…Douglas Monroe displayed his expertise on the clarinet, soloing on Carl Maria von Weber‟s „Polacca from Concerto No. 2‟…His playing was serious. Monroe‟s fingers never missed a note in running a series of scales. His breath was accurate as he changed octaves from a low E to high F.”
