REVIEWS 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.” CLARINET TEACHERS 2006-2008/ 1988-1990 1987 1986-1987 1983-1986 1981-1983 1980-1981 1979-1980 James Pyne Joaquin Valdepeñas Dr. Charles West Dr. Elsa Ludewig-Verdehr Leon Russianoff Dr. Frank Kowalsky Paul Schaller The Ohio State University Aspen Music Festival University of Arizona Michigan State University Manhattan School of Music Interlochen Arts Academy Detroit Symphony Orchestra
