Professor Stephanie Zelnick (clarinet) was invited by the prestigious Berkshire Music Trust in the U.K. to perform and teach on January 10, 2011.

Dr. Stephanie Zelnick, Buffet-Crampon Artist and assistant professor of clarinet at the University of Kansas, has emerged as one of the most dynamic performers of her generation. She has appeared as a soloist in venues throughout the United States, Asia, South America, and Europe, including most recently the 34th annual International Music Festival of the Escola de Música e Artes Cênicas da Universidade Federal de Goiás in Goiania, Brazil, at the Academia Musicale Vincenzo Bellini in Salerno, Italy, the European Day of Jewish Music in Novi Sad, Serbia, and in the National Concert Hall in Taipei, Taiwan.

In addition to her solo work, she is currently the principal clarinet of the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra and the Central City Opera, both located in Colorado. She has recently completed recordings of Morton Gould's Derivations as featured soloist on the Naxos label, Brooke Joyce's Wave of Stone on the Innova label, and Antonio Fraiolis La Bacana. Her playing can be heard weekly on NPR and Colorado Public Radio. She has been broadcast on WFMT, Chicago, as part of the Dame Myra Hess Artist Series, and featured on television series in Serbia, Italy and the United States.
