Clarinetist George Stoffan, U.S. Fulbright Scholar to the Czech Republic, performs music inspired by Bohemia.

For more than a decade, clarinetist George Stoffan has performed music of Czech composers from a variety of musical traditions.  He was named a U.S. Fulbright Scholar to the Czech Republic in 2012 and served as an artist-in-residence at the Janáček Academy of Music in Brno.  Stoffan performed and taught in his official role there, but the engagement with Czech students, teachers, and performers fostered a memorable cultural exchange.  He will present a program of works he discovered as a result of his collaboration with Czech musicians, and as a part of an ongoing endeavor to share and promote Czech music in the United States and abroad.
