Hi! I’m clarinet soloist Danny Goldman, and I invite all of you on a journey through music. I’ve had the incredible opportunity to share my passion for music with audiences around the world and am grateful for the recognition I’ve received. It’s definitely an ego-boost to be called “flat-out, jaw agape spectacular” (The Courier-Journal) and “a wunderkind” (Maestro Robert Franz).
I’ve been fortunate to travel and perform in some amazing places, from Europe and Asia to the USA, Israel, and South America. Connecting with diverse audiences through my music is a profoundly enriching experience. I am honored to have performed at renowned venues, including Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, Tanglewood, Spoleto, Pacific Music Festival, The Guggenheim Museum, The Kennedy Center, and many others. It’s a dream come true. I’m grateful for every moment on these iconic stages.
The response to my music videos on social media has been overwhelming, and I’m so touched to see that they’ve garnered over 1 million views. It warms my heart to know that my music and these compositions can resonate with people worldwide.
My musical education at Juilliard and Rice University has shaped me as an artist and allowed me to continuously grow as a musician. I’m thankful for the dedicated mentors and professors who guided me on this path: Angela Soren, George Townsend, Eli Eban, John Bruce Yeh, Nathan Williams, Ricardo Morales, and Michael Webster.
I play exclusively on F. Arthur Uebel clarinets and Vandoren mouthpieces, reeds, and ligatures. These musical instruments are an extension of my musical expression, and I cherish the harmonious bond we share.
As a tenured member and Board Director of The Dallas Opera, I’m honored to be part of an organization that celebrates and supports the love of music and opera in our community.
Thank you for allowing me to share my musical journey with you all. It’s a tremendous privilege, and I’m excited to continue exploring the boundless world of music together. Vaya!
