Poelking's compositions have been the recipient of numerous accolades and have been performed throughout the world. His work There and Back for Bass Clarinet has been performed in dozens of concert halls on four separate continents and led to the creation of this consortium.
Poelking is an frequently commissioned composer and currently serves on the music faculty at Colorado State University and works as Composer-in-Residence for the Greater Boulder Youth Orchestras.
Dr. Kelsey Paquin
