Dr. Tom Aber

Thomas Aber, a founding member of newEar contemporary Chamber Ensemble, is also the bass clarinetist with the Omaha Symphony.  His studies of the bass clarinet took him to Julliard and then to the Netherlands, where he studied contemporary techniques and repertoire of the bass clarinet with Harry Sparnaay. In 1979 he was a prize winner in the Gaudeamus Foundation's International Competition for Interpreters of Contemporary Music. Aber earned his D.M.A in clarinet at the Conservatory of the University of Missouri-Kansas City. His musical interests are wide-ranging, extending from many current styles to traditional music and traditional instruments from the Balkans and Turkey.

  • "The work these men (Recipe Poetry Guild) do with my students is amazing I am continually surprised that my traditionally mute students spark up and open up in these workshops. Also, I want to say that could see these gentlemen as visting artists in residence in the KCMO school district. They are so constructive and positive."    KC Public Schools Teacher
