On Monday, April 21, 2014, members of the Juilliard Club, Carnegie Hall Notables, and guests enjoyed an intimate performance by the Pacifica Quartet, with clarinetist Anthony McGill, in Juilliard's Glorya Kaufman Dance Studio. The ensemble played two excerpts from their brand new Cedille album Mozart & Brahms Clarinet Quintets, followed by a Q&A with Dean and Provost Ara Guzelimian. Special thanks go to Club/Notables member Brandon Sherr for generously underwriting the event; to Insomnia Cookies for their product donation to the reception; and to D'Addario Strings and Cedille Records for generously providing gifts bags.
