    Erin Vander Wyst, clarinet

    Erin Vander Wyst, clarinetist, received her D.M.A. in Clarinet Performance at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where she studied with Dr. Marina Sturm. Originally from Appleton, Wisconsin, Erin received Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in clarinet performance from the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee under the tutelage of Todd Levy. Since moving to Las Vegas, Erin has performed with the Las Vegas Philharmonic, Opera Las Vegas, and the Southern Nevada Musical Arts Society, among others. Fall 2016 will mark Erin’s international debut with a lecture recital performance at the Doctors in Performance Conference in Dublin, Ireland. Erin performs frequently on both clarinet and bass clarinet with UNLV’s contemporary music ensemble, Nextet. Outside of performance, Erin serves as Principal Librarian of the Las Vegas Philharmonic and maintains a large private clarinet studio in Las Vegas. She is in demand as a clinician and adjudicator throughout southern Nevada. Her primary research interest is the clarinet music of Finnish composers, especially the works of Kimmo Hakola. An avid Green Bay Packer fan, Erin also enjoys knitting and volunteering as a dog walker with the Nevada SPCA animal shelter in Las Vegas. She lives in Henderson with her three pet goldfish.
