21-year-old clarinetist from Julliard visits local schools
Two Dougherty County schools hosted international clarinetist Narek Arutunian Thursday.
He performed at Lamar Reese Magnet School for the Arts and at Radium Springs Middle Magnet School of the Arts.
FOX 31 caught up with him at Radium Springs where he was performing music for the 7th grade fine arts majors.
Their band director, Scott Kroll, said it's important for the students to be exposed to all kinds of instruments and music. He feels it inspires them to pick up an instrument and work their hardest at learning how to play it.
Students also got the chance to ask the clarinetist questions after his performance.
