The Clarinets for Conservation formed 4 years ago to champion the threatened Mpingo, or African Blackwood tree, and promote awareness of the tree’s plight in Tanzania. C4C strives to further sustainable practices by actively engaging students and the community with music. Arizona educator and Clarinetist Katie Palmer is part of the effort.
Call Me Debbie—True Confessions of a Down-to-earth Diva, by Deborah Voight, Harper, 2015 "...you’ll come away from this book not only loving Voights artistry and talent, but also loving her as a person, and admiring her for going through this ring of fire and coming out the other side. After reading this memoir, Debbie’s more than a talented Diva—she’s family." --Randy Kinkel, KBAQ (Meet Debbie at Changing Hands bookstore at 3 pm Feb 15th!)
