Woodwind instructor makes solo clarinetist debut in Burlington


Music professor Zoltan Kalman will be blowing his own horn – or clarinet – this weekend with the Burlington Concert Band.

Kalman, who serves as the band’s concert director, will be making his debut as a soloist with the band when he performs Clarinet Concerto by English composer Philip Sparke.

Kalman fell for the piece last year when one of the clarinetists in the Brock University Wind Ensemble performed it under his direction.

“And I said to myself, ‘Why don’t you play it?’ I fell in love with this piece,” Kalman told the Hamilton Spectator earlier this week. “I thought it was about time for the others (in the band) to see and hear me play the clarinet.”

Kalman will take the stage at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre Friday to perform the upbeat concerto, composed in 2003.

For tickets, call 905-681-6000 or visit the performing arts centre online.
