Duo  319 - "We Shall Never Surrender"

January begins with two excited performances of a new program for clarinet and piano. "We Shall Never Surrender"  comprises pieces written during the World War II, including works by Copland, Finzi and Weinberg. The theme has been for a quite long time in my mind and it feels is the right moment for it. I am so happy to collaborating with a wonderful and sensitive pianist, Minji Kwon. We are performing this program at the University of Iowa and The Grand Living Senior Community. 

Thiago Ancelmo and Friends

 In March, Thiago is going to Appleton, WI to perform alongside with good friends in a new project involving soprano Amy Petrongelli (Baylor), pianist Ana Maria Otamendi (LSU) and cellist Horacio Contreras ( Lawrence University).
