  It isn't news that Anthony McGill is a masterful clarinetist, but his recital Sunday evening for Music in the Valley still surprised. The pristine technique, the breadth of tone coloring, the expressive richness of phrasing -- all of these gifts seemed more impressive than ever. The chief take-away from the concert is that the New York Philharmonic is awfully lucky. McGill, who has been co-principal clarinet of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for a decade, was just appointed the Philharmonic's principal.

WQXR in New York reports that Anthony McGill, one of the most eloquent clarinetists of our day, will join the New York Philharmonic in September as principal. McGill has been co-principal clarinetist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra for a decade and a Peabody Conservatory faculty member since 2008. There is extra interest in the Philharmonic post since McGill is the third musician to be hired since the retirement, after six decades, of Stanley Drucker in 2009. The first two accepted the position, but subsequently changed their minds.

For now, the Meade High graduate must continue to ponder the school budget and its impact on students.

Storyteller and author Alice McGill appears at the Aberdeen Branch Library on Wednesday to wrap up the library's Black History Month celebration. Performing "Songs and Tales of African-American Folklore," McGill will draw from a collection of more than 200 stories, chants and songs, weaving their words and themes together to show the similarities in folk tales across ethnic and racial boundaries. McGill frequently explores ethnic and racial themes in her literary works. Her first book, Molly Bannaky, recounts the true story of a white servant girl living in Maryland in the late 17th century who falls in love with and marries a black indentured man. Miles' Song, McGill's second book, is set in the pre-Civil War South and tells the experiences of a 12-year-old slave boy as he learns about life and struggles to find a "song of freedom."

When Alice McGill was growing up in North Carolina, her mother began each morning with an earnest prayer: "Lord, it's me. I come before you, this mornin', knee bent and body bowed, beggin' for You to hold my little chillun in the hollow of Your hand." Those words helped inspire McGill's latest book, "In the Hollow of Your Hand: Slave Lullabies," a collection of 13 songs accompanied by a compact disc on which McGill sings. For McGill, a former Towson State University teacher, the songs are as much about African-American history as they are about family tradition.

In Peter Shaffer's wildly fanciful play “Amadeus,” the mediocre and oh-so jealous composer Salieri describes the moment he realized the genius of his nemesis - hearing a phrase in Mozart's Serenade for Winds that was “filled with such longing … it had me trembling.” Any Mozart fan is bound to have a similar example, some little moment of Mozart that seems impossibly beautiful, unusually affecting. For me, it comes in the Adagio of the Clarinet Concerto, when the soloist begins a tender descending melody that gets gently answered by the orchestra.

No matter how deteriorated the family situation, a child removed from home for abuse or neglect will nearly always tell the courts he wants to return home. A court-appointed special advocate or CASA, a trained volunteer, can provide a judge an informed, clear picture of that home situation. "We speak for the child," said Joan T. McGill, 63, a CASA volunteer for 10 years. "We do the research and back it up. We are there for the child and can help others make a decision that is in the child's best interest.

"It was all kind of frightening," Anthony McGill says of his part in the presidential inauguration Jan. 20. The clarinetist, who performs tomorrow night with the Peabody Concert Orchestra, was one of the four nearly frozen musicians who gave the virtual premiere of John Williams' "Air and Simple Gifts" on the West Front of the Capitol, just before Barack Obama was sworn in as president. As the whole world later discovered, those players - violinist Itzhak Perlman, cellist Yo-Yo Ma, pianist Gabriela Montero and McGill - played to a recording they had made a couple of days before.

Moments after Joe Biden is sworn in as vice president of the United States on the West Front of the Capitol and just before Barack Obama takes his oath as president, four classical musicians will perform a work created by John Williams for the history-rich inauguration. One of those players is Anthony McGill, principal clarinetist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and a newcomer to the Peabody Conservatory faculty. When he got the word last month that he would be participating in what might be considered the mother of all gigs, McGill's initial reaction was: "Wow, this is absolutely unbelievable.

North Carolina's surprising 7-5 victory over Virginia on Saturday represented such a stunning turnaround from its previous game, even Tar Heels coach John Bunting had to pinch himself when he woke up Sunday morning. "To be honest with you, I had to check to see that we still won that ballgame," Bunting said. "That was a long, hard-fought game for me, the staff and the players." The win marked the first time North Carolina had held an opponent without a touchdown since 2001, a stat that is even more impressive when you consider that the Tar Heels' defense gave up the most points in school history two weeks prior in a 69-14 loss to Louisville.
