About the Artist

Composer/clarinetist/vocalist Beth Fleenor (Seattle) harbors a strong love for variety and all sonic manipulation, moving freely through genres such as jazz, rock, classical, contemporary chamber, Slavic and American folk, metal, musique concrete, ambient and pop. Her work has been heard internationally from 100,000 seat rock festivals, maximum-security prisons, and performance art in rural bars, to art galleries, bunkers, sidewalks, sacred spaces, and some of the most prestigious concert halls, museums, clubs and theaters in the country. Believing that “art is the discipline of being,” Beth uses sound to open the channels of communication between and within individuals and environments. Her work has been heard in live music, recordings, theater, performance art, installation, modern dance and film.

In 2014, Beth received a Fellowship to attend an arts residency at Millay Colony for the Arts.
