Symphony Spotlight: Ralph Skiano, Clarinet

Symphony Spotlight highlights the careers of orchestral musicians across the country. My guest for our October segment is Ralph Skiano, Principal Clarinetist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Ralph spent quite a bit of time here in Richmond, as Principal Clarinetist of the Richmond Symphony from 2002-2014. He has also served in the same position with the Detroit Symphony and the Des Moines Opera.

As a soloist, Ralph has been featured with ensembles in the United States, France, Germany and Switzerland. A fan of chamber music, he was a founding member of the Atlantic Chamber Ensemble based in Richmond. He is also an active educator, now teaching at the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music and previously serving on the faculty at James Madison University and the College of William and Mary.

Enjoy this month's Symphony Spotlight!
