Celebrity recital marks Regis School of Music anniversary

Leading clarinettist Emma Johnson will be in concert as The Regis School of Music in Bognor celebrates its 27th anniversary.

Emma’s celebrity recital will be in the School of Music, 46 Sudley Road, Bognor Regis on Saturday, September 23 at 7.30pm.

Alexander Levtov, who set up the Regis School of Music and runs it still, is delighted to welcome her: “The clarinet is a wonderful instrument but the majority of the time you hear it in an orchestra and you don’t hear many times the clarinet as a solo instrument in its own right. You think of the violin and cello and piano being so recognised as solo instruments but with the clarinet it is very rare but Emma’s great achievement is that she has made the clarinet recognised the world over as a solo instrument. She started by winning the BBC Young Musician of the Year but she has continued building up the repertoire and there is a really wonderful repertoire.”
