Anthony McGill serves as principal clarinet of the New York Philharmonic (the orchestra’s first African-American principal player) and maintains an international solo and chamber music career. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, he serves on the faculty of the Juilliard School, the Curtis Institute, and Bard College’s Conservatory of Music. McGill has been using his platform as a renowned musician to speak out powerfully about the struggle for racial justice and decency.
Anna Polonsky was scheduled to close FCM’s last season with violinist Arnaud Sussmann. She has previously performed on our series with violinist Stefan Jackiw and pianist Orion Weiss. Polonsky, who earned degrees from the Curtis Institute and Juilliard, serves on the piano faculty of Vassar College, and in the summer at the Marlboro and Kneisel Hall chamber music festivals.
