“Daniel and Richard are truly world-class musicians,” says Whang. “In addition to playing with the Cleveland Orchestra, they have performed in concert at venues around the world.”

The program will feature Margaret Brouwer’s “Sonata for Horn and Piano,” Gunther Schuller’s “Romantic Sonata for Clarinet, Horn and Piano,” Leonard Bernstein’s “Sonata for Clarinet and Piano,” and George Rochberg’s “Trio for Clarinet, Horn and Piano.”

McKelway, winner of the Avery Fisher Award, serves as the Assistant Principal Clarinetist of The Cleveland Orchestra and Professor of Clarinet and Chamber Music at the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory. He has performed as a soloist and chamber musician throughout the United States and in 12 foreign countries. In addition, McKelway has toured and recorded with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.

King joined The Cleveland Orchestra in 1988 at age 20 as associate principal horn. He served as principal horn from 1997-2015, and since 2015 is the fourth horn player.  An active chamber musician and recitalist, he has also performed as a member of the Center City Brass Quintet since 1985. King heads the horn department at the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he has served on the faculty since 1995.
