Historical clarinetist Dominic Giardino enjoys a varied professional life exploring the intersections of history and performance. Dominic was first introduced to historically informed performance through the lens of 19th-century band music with Newberry’s Victorian Cornet Band in 2013. Since then, he has performed with a variety of ensembles specializing in HIP in the U.S. including the Smithsonian Chamber Players, the Oregon Bach Festival Period Orchestra, Teatro Nuovo, and Three Notch’d Road: The Virginia Baroque Ensemble. In addition to freelancing, Dominic is a musician with The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation where he develops programming centered on concert culture in British America and the Early Republic. He is currently the executive director of Arizona Early Music and serves on the board of Early Music America. Dominic earned his B.M. at the Eastman School of Music and his M.M. as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar in The Hague where he studied historical clarinets and chalumeaux with Eric Hoeprich.
