Artist Information

F. Gerard Errante


A long-time advocate of new music, F. Gerard Errante has enjoyed a performance and recording career spanning decades.  A native New Yorker (Brooklyn), he began his music career like so many do – in a public school music program.  His love for music and his aptitude for woodwinds drove his pursuit of music all the way to college.  Most of his family had advanced careers in medicine; Gerry’s calling was music.  He became a dedicated student and scholar of music first at Queens College (BA), then at Wisconsin, (MA).  He did his doctoral work at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor), and completed his DMA there in 1970.

Burton Beerman


A concert clarinetist of international reputation, Burton Beerman has been hailed by audiences as one of the leading clarinetists of contemporary and avant-garde music whose virtuosity and technical control of the instrument establish him as an extraordinary and compelling performer. As a composer he has straddled both the worlds of acoustic and computer music and is particularly known for the graceful integration of interactive video, electric clarinet and dance. Performances have taken place in such international arenas as Paris, London, Brussels, Tokyo, Mexico City, New York City, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston and Chicago. Founder of the acclaimed New Music Festival of Bowling Green State University, he is director of the University's Music Technology Studios.
