(March 20, 2014) -- The UTSA Department of Music will present clarinetist Shannon Scott and flutist Leonard Garrison for a duo concert performance at 7:30 p.m., Friday, March 21 in the Arts Building Recital Hall on the UTSA Main Campus. Admission is free and open to the public.
The duo began performing together in 1988, and as 16-year members of the Tulsa Philharmonic, gave concert performances throughout Oklahoma. In 2006, the pair moved to Idaho and perform throughout the Pacific Northwest.
They have been featured at several national conventions including the National Flute Association, College Music Society and the National Association of Wind and Percussion Instructors.
Their two CDs, "Perennials" and "Barn Dances," received critical acclaim and were recognized by The Instrumentalist for bringing music to life and setting the bar high for outstanding chamber music performance.
Currently, Scott serves as an instructor of clarinet and teaches a course on the History of Music. Additionally, she performs as a clarinetist in the Solstice Woodwind Quintet at the Washington State University School of Music. In the summertime, she teaches and performs as principal clarinetist of the Eastern Music Festival in North Carolina.
Garrison is an associate professor of flute and aural skills at the University of Idaho. He also is a flutist in the Northwest Wind Quintet, principal flute of the Walla Walla Symphony and former chair of the National Flute Association. His summers are spent teaching and performing at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp in Michigan and the Red Lodge Music Festival in Montana.
