Clarinet Quartattitude 'the quartet with attitude,' was formed in 2013 to entertain, educate, inspire & occasionally confuse audiences young & old alike. The group is equally comfortable playing classical, jazz & pop arrangements, repertoire standards and serves up nostalgia by featuring music from the 40s and 50s.
Their eclectic style, combined with the edgy humor expected from musicians of a certain age, makes for an unforgettable concert of clarinetery (not a real word, but should be) as well as a celebration of community & culture.
Nancy Williams is the group's founder, manager & amateur comedian working hard to finish her degree in clarinet performance. Deb Knowles is the heart of the group, grew up in the town that inspired The Music Man & studied with the famous Himie Voxman. Deb Martin is a retired elementary music teacher, the tallest member of the group & recently formed possibly the only church bluegrass band on the planet, or at least the upper Midwest. Dan Mulally is an engineer, landlord, bee keeper, stable manager & politician's husband. He also plays in a rock band, Kim and the Cue Balls.
