Conductor David Hattner delivers “calmly authoritative” (The New York Times) performances that are “brilliant in all departments.” (The Chicago Tribune) Hattner’s high musical intelligence and phenomenal technique uniquely combine with a warm and cooperative disposition, allowing for an ease of execution which imbues confidence and expands possibilities. Although he is energetic and animated, an inner calm and polish characterizes Hattner’s presence on the podium. This clarity creates space for Hattner and his performers to revel in the joy of music-making, leading to concert experiences that are truly magical.

An accomplished clarinetist having studied with the legendary Robert Marcellus, Hattner regularly performs in live radio broadcast on All Classical Portland, and has served as principal clarinet with the Princeton Symphony Orchestra, Cascade Music Festival Orchestra in Bend, New Jersey Opera Theater, and Key West Symphony Orchestra.
