U.S. Navy Band Clarinet Day is an annual event that features a mix of performances, lectures and masterclasses designed to inspire and educate clarinetists of all ages. This one-day event is typically held each fall in the Washington, D.C., area. This year’s events take place Nov. 16, 2019, featuring guest artist Bil Jackson, of Vanderbilt University.
All registrants have the opportunity to play side-by-side with members of the Navy Band clarinet section in the large Festival Clarinet Choir. For early registrants, a limited number of lesson times are also available for one-on-one clarinet instruction. Another highlight is the Joint Service Recital, an experience unique to Navy Band Clarinet Day, which showcases performances by clarinetists in the premier bands of the Navy, Army, Air Force and Marines. Participants also have the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of clarinet-related vendors.
Featured guest artists and clinicians in recent years have included Sean Osborne, Richie Hawley, Ricardo Morales, Eugene Mondie, Jeremy Reynolds, Larry Combs, and Julie DeRoche.
