Fre concert - Carol Pelkner & Jim George - marimba, vibraphone and clarinet
3:00 PM - Sunday, July 17, 2016
1 Hour

The delightful duo of Carol Pelkner and Jim George are entertaining audiences throughout Southern California.

Come explore the unique sonic landscape when Jim and Carol combine the marimba, flute, vibraphone, clarinet and bass clarinet. Also included are a variety of unique percussion instruments from Latin favorites such as claves and shakers to sound effect instruments such as the flexitone and vibraslap. 

A unique feature of this program will be exploring percussion and wind instruments with regards to sound production, the difference in quality of sound between wood and metal instruments, and, of course, their rhythmic capabilities!
Jim and Carol will present selections from Baroque to Jazz, including the rhythmic intensity of Bach on the marimba and the mellifluous echoes of Benny Goodman and Lionel Hampton on clarinet and vibes. Hear Flight of the Bumblebee on the marimba! Participate in the traditional music of Ecuador and improvise with Jim and Carol on an upbeat tune. Come join the fun!

Carol Pelkner has performed with the San Diego and Vancouver Symphony Orchestras. She has presented over 300 school assembles throughout British Columbia and California.

Jim George maintains an active solo & chamber music schedule & freelances in San Diego as a woodwind doubler.
