Clark Evans

Clark Evans

Throughout his life, Clark Evans has explored many facets of the world of music. As a performer, he has been a part of many varied ensembles as a cellist and as a pianist, competed as a soloist on both instruments, and has taught a number of students. As a composer, he has had the privilege of seeing many of his original works performed throughout the country. As part of their 2012-2013 concert season, the Flagstaff Symphony Orchestra performed Sylphs and Seraphim, a work that came about by Evans's participation in the Tucson Symphony Young Composers' Project under the direction of Ilona Vukovic-Gay. Other pieces have been performed by local ensembles such as Tucson Junior Strings and the Tucson Symphony String Quintet. In past years, he has received the awards of finalist and honorable mention in the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Competition.
 
While studying cello performance at Brigham Young University, Evans set apart personal life and ambitions to serve two years as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Dallas, Texas. He is now focusing on the commitment he has made by sharing the blessings he has experienced in his life as a result of his faith. While he is unable to return to Tucson for this performance, he extends his gratitude and appreciation to the Civic Orchestra of Tucson for the work and time they have spent preparing to perform To Move a Mountain, the newest of Evans' compositions, and the last completed prior to his mission. This piece was a gift to his former cello instructor, Mary Beth Tyndall, who conducts this performance.
