SO A CLARINETIST & COMEDIAN WALK INTO A BAR…. Classical clarinetist Anthony McGill, the 2020 Avery Fisher prize recipient and the first Black principal player of the New York Philharmonic, and writer/comedian (and fellow clarinetist!) Kimberly Clark (Tiffany Haddish Presents: They Ready – Season 2 on Netflix; The Late Late Show w/ James Corden) reminisce about growing up as Black band kids in a heartwarming new project honoring the power of music education.
Through a heartwarming combination of photos, performance and conversation, Anthony and Kimberly connect over how being middle school band geeks continues to inform them as performers and people. They share their art and even come together to collaborate on a triumphant clarinet duet. They discuss their intersecting journeys as Black entertainers thriving in entertainment fields dominated by white men.
