Richie Hawley was appointed principal clarinet of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in 1994 at the age of 23, just two years after graduating from the Curtis Institute of Music. Many of the 60+ recordings by the CSO and Cincinnati Pops during his tenure have featured major solos of the clarinet repertoire.
Professor of clarinet at the Shepherd School of Music at Rice University in Houston, Richie was previously Assistant Professor and head of the clarinet studio at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music. In 1988 he was one of five musicians to receive the Gold Medal as a Presidential Scholar in the Arts from Ronald Reagan in a ceremony at the White House, while in 2009 he was awarded the Glover Award for Outstanding Teacher of the Year at University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music.
Richie made his orchestral solo debut at the age of 13, performing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic as the winner of its student stars competition. At 14 he performed on one of the New York Philharmonic's young person's subscription concerts as a winner of the Philharmonic's national talent search competition.
Richie is a D’Addario Woodwinds Performing Artist and Clinician, and plays exclusively on the Reserve Classic reeds and Reserve mouthpieces, which he helped develop. He is also a Buffet-Crampon artist, performing on the Tosca model of clarinet.
Born in Taranaki, New Zealand in 1981, Michael studied at the New Zealand School of Music, Wellington with Debbie Rawson. In The Netherlands, he studied under Johan van der Linden at the Messiaen Academie, and at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg in France with Philippe Geiss.
