Event Type

This year's Gala will feature a tribute to clarinetist Deborah Pittman, who is retiring after 25 years as one of the shining lights of the Sacramento State Music Department. Ms. Pittman holds BS and MA degrees in music performance from Brooklyn College Conservatory and has done doctoral studies at the Manhattan School of Music. A native New Yorker, she moved to Sacramento in 1981 to play second and bass clarinet with the Sacramento Symphony, a position she held from 1981-1990. She will be joined in concert by colleagues, friends, and several former students who are now accomplished professionals themselves.

The program will include Steve Reich's riveting work for eleven clarinets, "New York Counterpoint". Back by popular demand, we will also present a performance by the winner the annual A.J. and Susi Watson Student Chamber Music Competition. In addition faculty professor Stephen Blumberg has composed a special tribute piece to Deborah Pittman, entitled "Looking Forward, Looking Back", which will be premiered by the local new music ensemble, Citywater.
