Clarinet on the Rocks
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 17 | 9:15pm
NEW RIFF DISTILLERY
24 Distillery Way, Newport, KY 41073
We’ll have you saying “On the rocks, please” as CCO principal clarinetist John Kurokawa performs with a string quartet. He will lead a program of barrel-aged and full-flavored favorites from Finzi, Weber, Vaughan Williams, Strauss II, and more. As you savor the musical selections, you will savor a tasting of spirits Forbes called “one of the most exciting new distilleries in the world” and Whisky Advocate named as one of the Top 20 Whiskies of 2019. Cheers!
John Kurokawa, CCO principal clarinet
