Premiere of “Sea Songs: Mobula Ray” for Solo B-flat Clarinet at SUNY-Potsdam February 2, 2024


Sea Songs: Mobula Ray for Solo B-Flat Clarinet Premiere at Crane School of Music | SUNY Potsdam by Julianne Kirk Doyle

Julianne Kirk Doyle gives the New York State Premiere of my new work “Sea Songs: Mobula Ray” for solo Clarinet in B-flat at SUNY Potsdam SUNY Potsdam Crane School of Music. This work tells the story of the Mobula Ray that migrate by the thousands through the Sea of Cortez April-June each year. Flying like popcorn in and out of the ocean, they are an amazing sight as they travel and look for food.
This work is an expansion of the clarinet cadenza in another new work “Fin de la Tierra: Land’s End” – Clarinet concerto with Chamber Orchestra. Mobula Ray solo was part of a commissioning consortium and I’m thrilled to have Julianne give the NY premier of it!
Check out the livestream link below to hear her performance on the second half of this Faculty showcase recital!
Friday, February 2nd
7:30pm Eastern (she’ll probably perform around 8:30)
(This work is still under consortium but will be available late spring for purchase at jennibrandon.com)
