Dr. Banks

This summer was an exciting one for Christy Banks. She and her Spatial Forces Duo partner, Jessica Lindsey, completed their debut album of commissioned works for two clarinetists with electronics: Little Spectacle. The album is scheduled to be released on Albany Records on Jan. 1, 2022.  The Spatial Forces Duo also headlined the Charlotte New Music Festival in July, where the duo performed three concerts of varying literature and gave a workshop to aspiring composers. In July, Banks also recorded an album with NakedEye Ensemble and performed as a chamber musician for the Lancaster International Piano Festival. When not rehearsing with BATIK clarinet quartet or performing with local ensembles Manor Winds and Allegro Orchestra, Banks spent her summer continuing her administrative duties as the Artistic Director for the International Clarinet Association’s ClarinetFest® 2022, a five-day international conference to be held in Reno, NV.
