Double reed artists revive our past, define our present, and shape our future.

The 1998 Conference includes a special invitational series of premieres, retrospectives, experiments, and chronologies entitled Identity. Identity is people playing music from their culture, from their training, from their heritage. It's people talking about what's important to them, where they learned it, who they learned it from. It's people sharing their history with you and playing their music within traditional and nontraditional idioms. We want to show the double reed world as it exists today with all of its diversity and accomplishment.
