Who knew a clarinet could be glorious?

The concert includes four works of music with German and Italian influences. Before the concert, at 6:15 p.m., the Conductor's Chat features a panel discussion featuring Conductor Clay Couturiaux, Soloist Scot Humes, and Monroe Symphony Chorus Director Deborah Chandler.

The Glorious Clarinet is be a collaboration of the Monroe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
