A lifelong resident of the Pacific Northwest, composer and clarinetist Angelique Poteat’s music has been described as “engaging, restless” (The New York Times) and “serious and nicely crafted” (American Record Guide). Most recently, her music was performed as part of a concert last June in the newly opened Octave 9: Raisbeck Music Center at Benaroya Hall.

Angelique teams up with an all-star team of musicians from Seattle to perform some of her compositions alongside iconic chamber music for the clarinet and string quartet, including the transcendent Clarinet Quintet by Johannes Brahms, often considered to be one of the greatest pieces of chamber music ever written. The program will also feature a special performance with the Liberty’s Executive Director, Jennifer Crockett.
