Clarinet, Assistant Principal
Stephanie Key received her BM, with Distinction in Performance, from New England Conservatory of Music in Boston. Having performed throughout the United States and internationally, she has commissioned several works for clarinet. She recorded John Cage’s 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, a member of the Houston Ballet Orchestra, and plays clarinet, bass clarinet, and squeaky toy with the group Pseudo Buddha.
She is on the music faculties of Trinity University and the University of Texas at San Antonio. And now in addition to cross-country cycling, after scaling the exquisite heights of Middle, South and Grand Teton mountains this past summer, she includes mountain climbing as a new obsession.
