About Anthony McGill
Hailed by the New York Times as “a dazzling player of superlative technique and a gorgeous tone,” Metropolitan Opera Orchestra principal clarinetist Anthony McGill returns to the Queen City to open the Constella Festival’s second season. McGill is former CSO associate principal clarinet and performed John Williams’ Air and Simple Gifts with Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman and Gabriela Montero at President Obama’s inauguration. McGill performs John Corigliano’s Soliloquy, plus new works alongside CSO Principal cellist Ilya Finkelsteyn and Constella’s Founder and Artistic Director, violinist Tatiana Berman.

This unforgettable festival opener at CCM’s Robert J. Werner Hall also features the world premiere of Mark Adamo’s August Music with flutists Randy Bowman and Nina Perlove. An open reception follows at DAAP’s Dorothy W. and C. Lawson Jr. Reed Gallery.
