Concert showcases clarinet through the years

FLINT — Each year, the Flint School of Performing Arts (FSPA) showcases its talented faculty members in a series of concerts. These concerts, supported by generous sponsors, are free to the public and are educational and enjoyable to students and community members alike. Mozart to Modern features faculty clarinetist Michele LaNoue performing works by Mozart, Brahms, Stravinsky, and more.

The concert will take place Nov. 16, 7 p.m. at the Flint Institute of Music’s MacArthur Recital Hall.

“This concert will showcase the clarinet, and how its repertoire has evolved over the past 200 years,” explains faculty clarinetist Michele LaNoue. “We’ll begin with the Classical period, move to the Romantic era, and then shift to the 20th Century, ending with an electronic collaboration written in 2014.”

This concert will showcase the versatility and development of the instrument’s style over the years.

Michele LaNoue holds a Master of Music degree in Clarinet Performance from Michigan State University. As FSPA Clarinet Instructor, she teaches a large studio of students. She also coaches sectionals at local schools. An avid performer, Michele has made both national and international appearances, and performs regularly with the South East Michigan Wind Ensemble and the Flint Symphony Orchestra.

The Faculty Concert Series provides students with the unique opportunity to see their teachers in action, while the general public gets to experience a world-class performance. Mozart to Modern is a musical adventure that has a little something for everyone to enjoy. — G.G.
