In 1957, conductor and musicologist Newell Jenkins founded the Clarion Music Society. Based in New York, the Clarion Society has remained the city's premiere period-instrument ensemble, presenting hundreds of rare and rediscovered compositions throughout its long history. Recently, current Artistic Director Steven Fox has expanded the group's work as a period-instrument group, with a repertoire from Rossi through Aaron Copland. Tune in to Afternoon Classical on Friday, September 11th to hear a wide variety of the Clarion Society's recordings. In addition, there will be a ticket giveaway for their Opening Night concert on September 17th of Mozart's Mass In C Minor at St. Jean-Baptiste Roman Catholic Church. Stepan Atamian hosts.
