Anthony McGill, Principal Clarinet Player – NY Philharmonic – Jan 18, 2021

Today in honor of the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday we’re launching the Clarinet Corner podcast with a very special episode.  Our host Tim Phillips sat down last year with Anthony McGill, principal clarinetist with the NY Phil, to discuss his projects to increase racial representation including #TakeTwoKnees and his haunting arrangement of “America, The Beautiful.”  They also discuss the impact of the pandemic on both of their performing lives, and we sample a recording of recent performance McGill recorded. 


BTW, McGill was Tim’s first radio guest, so it’s only fitting that we feature him on the first podcast.  Remember there’s ALWAYS more where that came from!
