The American Single Reed Summit was established in the 2017 by Larkin Sanders, Neal Postma, Kristine Dizon, Stacy Christofakis, Sara Eastwood, Scotty Phillips, and Kevin Vorabout. Our goal is to establish deeper connections with clarinetists and saxophonists at all levels, creating meaningful musical experiences, and opportunities for future musical generations. I think it is safe to say our inaugural conference was a success!
