Enjoy a sneak peak of Jenni’s new work “Cacophony” for Solo B-flat Clarinet with Delay pedal commissioned by Chris Mothersole! I am really excited about this new work! It has been fun learning how to write with Delay pedal, and Chris is going to give a killer world premiere of this work on November 17. I’m so enjoying the colors the delay pedal adds to the clarinet and have had so much fun working with him on this new piece!
