Mueller will be accompanied by Peter Mueller, accompanist and acting principal trombone of the Macon Symphony, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra principal bass clarinetist Alcides Rodriguez and percussionist Charles Settle.

Selections for the evening are sure to entice chamber music lovers. The music ranges in style from a clarinet soliloquy for Generation X based on the grunge music of Nirvana and Alice and Chains to an Appalachian folk song.

The final selection hits a cool groove and premieres an arrangement of Eric Ewazen’s “Diamond World,” which was originally written for the Ahn Trio but has been rewritten by Mueller for clarinet, bass clarinet, piano and drum set.
