Paul Cosentino, clarinet soloist and founder of the Boilermaker Five band reveals the plan to refurbish instruments and put them in the hands of aspiring musicians with a concert to celebrate in East Liberty’s Ace Hotel. The collection starts at 2pm Friday June 8 with help from the D’Addario Foundation and Hungry For Music partnering with Todd Rundgren’s Spirit of Harmony Foundation. Paul details the history of the Boilermakers with a catalog of 12 cds and thousands of performances including several fundraisers at WQED-FM. Paul includes in the discussion his cd Slipped Disc which celebrates the record of the same name by Benny Goodman and gives us a sneak preview of the new cd on the way.
