I arranged Claude Debussy’s Children’s Corner, for solo piano, for an ensemble consisting of E-flat clarinet, B-flat clarinet, B-flat bass clarinet, E-flat contra-alto clarinet, and three percussionists. Children’s Corner for Clarinet Choir and Percussion includes all six movements from the original score including the popular VI. Golliwog’s Cakewalk. I spent the summer arranging each movement and consulting with Dr. Paul West-Osterfield who gave me critique, feedback, and editorial suggestions. As the fall semester began, I became responsible for rehearsing my arrangement with the MTSU Clarinet Choir, under usual direction of clarinet professor Dr. Todd Waldecker. The premier performance of my arrangement occurred on October 27th, 2015 and was very successful. I also plan on publishing the full arrangement in the future.
