re:CONNECT was made possible by a consortium commission featuring the La HERmandad duo (Carrie RavenStem and Adria Sutherland, clarinets) and other artists (see consortium members below). The work received its world premiere at the 2023 International Clarinet Association's 50th Anniversary "ClarinetFest" in Denver, Colorado. The music addresses the conference's theme, "unity" by exploring the four stages of separation and togetherness experienced by many during the 2020 COVID pandemic. Many thanks to Backun Clarinets and Indiana University Southeast for their sponsorship support of re:CONNECT's world premiere.
