Howard Klub, Jacobs School of Music Professor of Clarinet

WFIU’s Artist of the Month for July is clarinetist Howard Klug, professor of clarinet at the Jacobs School of Music. A graduate of Ohio State University (BME, clarinet) and the University of Maryland (MM, flute), Klug regularly appears at venues around the U.S. and abroad, and gives master classes in London and Vienna.

A former member of the U.S. Air Force Band, where he was a featured soloist on flute, clarinet, and saxophone, Klug has also been the principal clarinetist of the Fresno Philharmonic, Bear Valley Festival Orchestra, Sinfonia da Camera, and the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, and a member of the Columbus (Ohio) Symphony Orchestra and the Grant Park Symphony.

With the Fresno Philharmonic (on flute and clarinet), the Bear Valley Festival Orchestra, Klug has been a concerto soloist; he’s also soloed with the Kamerorkest of the Staatsacademie of Vilnius. His extensive chamber music affiliations have included the Illinois Trio, the Illinois Woodwind Quintet, and the Chicago Ensemble.

His numerous articles on clarinet playing have appeared in The Instrumentalist, Leblanc Bell and The Clarinet, where he was the pedagogy editor for ten years. He created the music publishing company Woodwindiana, which brings out previously unpublished solo, chamber, and pedagogical works for clarinet. He is the author of the book on clarinet technique, The Clarinet Doctor.

Klug’s most recent CD, Elegie, was a collaboration with the late pianist Andrew De Grado and features the music of Sarasate, Debussy, Fauré, and others. As a member of Trio Indiana, Klug recorded music by Jean-Michele Defaye, Peter Schickele, and Gary Kulesha. Klug’s students preform in ensembles and teach in universities across the country.
