A new tone for tree conservation: Clarinets for Conservation quartet to perform

March 18, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

 Clarinets for Conservation is proud to present a unique opportunity to hear C4C quartet members Ian Tyson, Mark Fugina, Debbie Larsen, and Michele Von Haugg perform.  Admission is by donation and all are welcome.   

This event will feature the inspirational documentary film, “Mpingo, The Tree That Makes Music” followed by a short performance.  In addition, members of the quartet will share stories of their work with the students of Korongoni Secondary School in Moshi, Tanzania. 

Founded in 2010, Clarinets for Conservation provides an interdisciplinary approach to sustainability through music education. The clarinet is derived from Tanzania’s national tree, the Mpingo, also known as African Blackwood, Grenadilla, and Ebony. The tree is of great value to artists, furniture makers, and hardwood carvers all over the world, but the high demand has threatened the tree’s future. Students of the program serve a vital role in educating their families and community members about the importance of protecting natural resources.

The program is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors and private donors.  100% of proceeds benefit the students of Clarinets for Conservation.
