Beth met the other members of what would become Alarm Will Sound while pursuing her Master’s degree in clarinet and music education at Eastman. She fondly remembers her first concert with the new music ensemble, Ossia, as Alan conducted Ian Quinn’s Passacaglia.
After graduating from Eastman, Beth won an orchestral job in Texas, but found the experience to be about as fulfilling as a regular office job. She jumped at the opportunity to rejoin fellow Alarm Will Sound musicians when they began their residency at Dickinson College in the small town of Carlisle, PA. She lived with other Alarm Will Sound members in a farmhouse during the three-year residency which they liken to being on a reality television show. Beth was lucky enough to remain on the ‘show’ for all three seasons and has remained in PA. She now teaches at Dickinson College, Harrisburg University, Messiah College and Kutztown University while maintaining an active freelance career.
Beth’s involvement in Alarm Will Sound is one of the highlights of her career. It is more than just an ensemble, she says, it’s a new way of approaching music. She also enjoys the sharing of knowledge that happens with the ensemble gets together as it greatly influences her teaching and overall musicianship.
