George Mason University Clarinet day features “In the City at Night” for Solo Basset Horn

Shannon Kiewitt from “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band performs Jenni’s work In the City at Night for solo Basset Horn during the Dewberry School of Music Clarinet Day at George Mason University on Sunday, January 28, 2024. This work, originally written for English horn, is at times playful and fast like many lights blinking on just after dusk in the city.  At other times it is quiet and serene like the city streets that are empty in the early hours before dawn.  In creating this world, I wanted the listener to be left with thoughts and impressions of a city after dark, and the lone voice of the Basset Horn telling the story of a night adventure on the city streets.
