E. Michael Richards, associate professor of music at Hamilton College, will present a concert featuring music for clarinet/bass clarinet on Saturday, April 6, at 8 p.m., in Wellin Hall of the Schambach Center for Music and the Performing Arts. The concert, titled, "Almost All-American," is free and open to the general public.

The performance will feature various American composers including: Jason Uechi, who incorporates computer processed speech sounds into his music, Judith Shatin, who has won numerous awards and commissions from various organizations including the Kronos Quartet, Elliot Schwartz, who has received commissions from the Minnesota Orchestra and the Cincinnati Symphony and Eric Dolphy, who has been regarded as one of the most inventive jazz saxophonists/bass clarinetists in jazz history.

The program will include Uechi's "Hearing Voices" for clarinet and computer tape, Shatin's "Meridians" for solo clarinet, Schwartz's "Halo" for solo bass clarinet and Dolphy's bass clarinet solo from "God Bless the Child." Richards will also perform the American premiere of "Kochi II" by the Japanese composer, Isao Matsushita.
