Member of The Dallas Opera
Danny Goldman picked up his first clarinet at the age of 11. He performed all the Weber concerti with The Louisville Orchestra by the age of 14. At 15, he was principal of The World Youth Symphony Orchestra and performed concerti with the orchestra. By 16, he was praised as “flat-out, jaw-agape spectacular” (The Courier-Journal, USA) and called a “wunderkind” (Maestro Robert Franz).
Danny began his formal training at The Juilliard School with Ricardo Morales. During his studies, he went on tourthroughout South America, China, Japan, USA, and Israel. Performances included a world premiere concerto with The New Juilliard Ensemble in Alice Tully Hall, Mozart’s Requiem in Carnegie Hall for the September 11 Memorial, and solo features on ChamberFest, FOCUS Festival, and The Great Expectations Recital Series.
Since graduating, Danny has performed with many organizations including The Cincinnati Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony, and IRIS Orchestra; he has been a soloist at The Tanglewood Music Center, Dallas Chamber Symphony, Chelsea Music Festival, Spoleto Festival, Pacific Music Festival, The Guggenheim Museum, and The Kennedy Center. Recent collaborations include work with The Amaryllis Quartet, Ken-David Masur, Zubin Mehta, and Emmanuel Villaume.
Danny is a tenured member of The Dallas Opera, where he holds a position on the Board of Directors. Upcoming performances include The Magic Flute, Don Carlo, and a gala performance with Plácido Domingo.
Danny’s latest and most exciting project is the formation of Trio Kavanáh with Eun Jin Kang (violin) and Dr. Trevor Hale (piano). After sold out concerts at Reunion Tower, The Dallas Museum of Art, and The Winspear, the trio signed with Jack Price Management and Kolot Management. Their next shows include a guest artist recital at The Basically Beethoven Festival, 2 city-sponsored “Classical Lounge” shows, and a second Steinway Hall tour. Danny and Trio Kavanáh have partnered with Samsung and SamsungVR (Virtual Reality) to produce and share 3-dimensional, 360-degree classical music concerts with the public.
Danny holds a Bachelor of Music from Juilliard and a Master of the Arts from Rice University. He is an exclusive artist with Uebel Clarinets.
