Aurora/East Aurora

East Aurora High School senior and clarinetist Myra Engle will play Brahms, Mozart and Debussy in a free concert 3 p.m. Sunday, January 12 with her teacher John Fullam, principal clarinetist with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra.

Her older sister Elisabeth Engle, a mezzo soprano, will sing a selection of three German songs by Louis Spohr. Friend John Mitton will play the piano. Donations will benefit her April concert tour in Italy with the Greater Buffalo Youth Orchestra.

“I definitely aspire to perform with the clarinet someday, somehow,” said Engle, 17, explaining her career ambitions. “Going on this trip is huge, especially touring with an orchestra.... I just think it’s great and such a good experience to have and carry with me.”

She loves the diversity of the instrument she has studied since fourth grade. It’s featured in classical music and jazz.

“It can play so many different pieces,” she said. “It just has a great blend and covers all aspects of music and I love that about it.”
