Clarinet Fusion Holiday Concert: Pleasant Hill Senior Center
Clarinet Fusion, the Contra Costa based clarinet choir, performs at the Pleasant Hill Senior Center on Thursday, December 10, at 7pm. This will be Clarinet Fusion’s third concert at the center. Previous concerts were standing room only events, with attendees of all ages. Past audiences continue to call for the group’s return for more of their fine music. One unique feature of these performances is that many young clarinet students attend with their parents and grandparents and get the opportunity see and learn more about the wide variety of clarinets being played. Music lovers of all ages will enjoy this holiday program.
In the upcoming performance, “Winter Memories,” Clarinet Fusion performs tunes from a variety of genres, including holiday, popular, klezmer, jazz, movies, and more.
Clarinet Fusion’s upcoming show is truly one of sight and sound. You will see clarinets that do not look like anything you have ever seen, and you will hear unique sounds you have likely never heard. The group will perform with seven unique types of clarinets, from very small, high-pitched ones to very big, deep, rich ones.
This talented group is made up of some of the best amateur musicians from throughout the East Bay, and they rehearse every week right here in Pleasant Hill at the home of Karyn Weber, founder of the group.
Please join us for this unique event. Doors open at 6:15pm. Refreshments will be served prior to the concert. Presale admission is $5 or $8 at the door.
