Stephanie Key received her BM with Distinction in Performance from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. A champion and avid performer of the music of our time, Stephanie co-founded the award-winning SOLI Chamber Ensemble with her husband, cellist David Mollenauer in 1993. Having performed throughout the United States and internationally, she has commissioned several works for clarinet and for SOLI. She appears on several recordings, including a compilation of the works of John Cage, for which she recorded his Sonata for Clarinet on the MODE label under the composer’s supervision.
She is currently Assistant Principal/E-flat Clarinet with the San Antonio Symphony and is an adjunct member of the music faculty at Trinity University. During the summers she performs at the Grand Teton Music Festival in Jackson, Wyoming.
