LEWISTON — Clarinetist Jon Manasse, one of the most distinguished classical musicians of his generation, and acclaimed Maine pianist Frank Glazer will perform Sunday, Jan. 22, at Bates College.

Recognized for his inspiring artistry and charismatic execution, Manasse is principal clarinetist of the American Ballet Theatre and the Mostly Mozart Festival orchestras.

Since 1995, he has been associate professor of clarinet at the Eastman School of Music, where Glazer taught from 1965 to 1980. In 2007, Manasse joined the faculty of his alma mater, The Juilliard School.

Manasse and his duo partner, pianist Jon Nakamatsu, are artistic directors of the Cape Cod Chamber Music Festival.

The 96-year-old Glazer, of Topsham, has had a distinguished international career that includes numerous recordings, solo recitals and performances with orchestras and chamber ensembles. With his wife, the late Ruth Glazer, he founded the Saco River Music Festival, held for many years in Cornish. Glazer has been an artist-in-residence at Bates since 1980.
