Classical, Jazz and Klezmer Clarinetist

Paul Green has been called a Renaissance man, an extraordinary clarinetist equally at home in classical, jazz and Klezmer music. Not content with just one career in his lifetime, he’s also a former attorney and law professor.

One of the leading clarinetists of our time, virtuoso Paul Green began his illustrious career as a 13-year-old guest artist with the New York Philharmonic in a performance of Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts. He hasn’t stopped breaking new ground since.

Combine the intellectual rigor of a law professor with the heart and passion of the consummate musician and you have Paul Green. He is always questioning, forever exploring new ideas. Fortunately for his audiences, Green shares his quest to mine the contributions of other musical genres, particularly Klezmer and other types of Jewish music as well as jazz. And what he has discovered…and offers audiences…is insightful and thought provoking, making him a popular performer and lecturer to music lovers of all ages.

Whether playing chamber, Klezmer or jazz music in South Florida or the Berkshires, or bringing his Jewish Jazz fusion to audiences throughout the world, Paul Green ignites his audiences with an exuberant blend of musicality, exceptional scholarship and joy.
