I am a DC based classical clarinetist. I have played many house concerts and always loved that type of performance. Making music in a small space and close to the audience is a wonderful experience. If you have a piano and want a concert of duos for clarinet and piano, please contact me!

And if you want to know more about my background, here is a formal bio...

Clarinetist Jeremy Eig’s musical interests run the gamut from solo performing to chamber music, teaching, commissioning new music and arranging/editing works for clarinet ensemble. He co-directs the Neighborhood Concert Series with his wife, Jessica Powell Eig which presents free chamber music performances around Washington, DC. He also performs with and serves as orchestra librarian with the New Orchestra of Washington. He has served in the US Navy Band since July 2012, and holds the rank of Musician 1st Class.

Dr. Eig is a devoted advocate for new music, and particularly the expansion of the clarinet solo literature. In 2009, he founded the Clarinet Commission Collective, which helps individual clarinetists pool their resources to commission major composers to write for the clarinet. In addition to commissioning, Dr. Eig is also an enthusiastic arranger, and publishes his editions of transcriptions for solo clarinet and clarinet ensemble through JTown Publications.

Dr. Eig completed his doctoral studies in 2008 at Stony Brook University. He received the degrees of Master of Music and Artist Diploma from Yale University, Bachelor of Music from the University of Michigan, and is a graduate of the Interlochen Arts Academy. Principal teachers include David Shifrin, Alan Kay, Fred Ormand, and Richard Hawkins.
