Established in 2011, Lake Effect Clarinet Quartet (LECQ) is committed to the performance of high quality chamber music, unbounded by style or instrumentation, that showcases the unique capabilities and versatility of the clarinet family. Comprised of voices similar to a string quartet, LECQ’s repertoire is focused on translating music originally written for other instrumentation into relevant listening experiences.
Recently named Generation Vandoren artists, LECQ concertizes and presents clinics throughout the Midwest. Lake Effect has performed at the Vandoren Clarinet Ensemble Festival (2013), presented at the Vandoren booth at the Midwest Band Clinic (2013, 2014), and was invited to compete in the quarterfinal round of the 2012 Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition in South Bend, Indiana.
