Eddie Daniels, the virtuoso clarinetist who has been called "a thoroughly well-bred demon" by Leonard Bernstein, will open the 139th season of the Artist Recital Series at Oberlin with an 8 p.m. program Saturday, September 17, in Finney Chapel.

A master in the worlds of classical and jazz, Daniels brings to Oberlin a lineup of jazz pals—Darek Oles on bass, Alan Pasqua on piano, and Joe La Barbera on drums—and a passel of standards and original compositions that will be announced from the stage. For a sample of Daniels' work, watch this performance of "Stompin' at the Savoy" from a club performance in Southern California.

Tickets to Eddie Daniels are $35 ($30 for seniors, military personnel, and Oberlin faculty, staff, and alumni; and just $10 for students). For tickets to this and all other Oberlin events, please visit Oberlin's online Arts Guide, call the box office at 800-371-0178, or visit Oberlin’s Central Ticket Service (inside Hall Auditorium, 67 N. Main St.) weekdays from noon to 5 p.m.

Full subscriptions to the 2016-17 Artist Recital Series are available for as low as $150, with student subscriptions only $50.

An Oberlin tradition since 1878, the Artist Recital Series brings to historic Finney Chapel the world’s most talented performers across a spectrum of musical styles. The series at Oberlin continues September 30 with a visit by the Zukerman Trio, featuring celebrated violinist Pinchas Zukerman and Oberlin’s own Professor of Piano Angela Cheng. The trio will perform works by Glière, Shostakovich, and Schubert.
