He has appeared as soloist with the Thailand Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lemmens Modern Ensemble, and the University of Florida Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony, among others. Don-Paul has been involved in the creation and performance of over 100 new works for saxophone. Don-Paul is a doctoral candidate for the Ph.D in Artistic Research in collaboration with Leiden University (NL) and the Orpheus Institute (BE). His previous degrees were earned from the Lemmensinstituut, the University of Florida, and Susquehanna University. His mentors are Jean-Michel Goury, Marcus Weiss, Jonathan Helton, Geoffrey Deibel, and Gail B. Levinsky, with additional study with Frederick L. Hemke. Don-Paul is a Henri Selmer Paris and Conn-Selmer performing artist, and performs on Selmer Paris saxophones and mouthpieces exclusively.
Ensemble Bio: Duo Entre-Nous is a clarinet and saxophone ensemble dedicated to the evolution of new music. Formed in 2014 by Jackie Glazier and Don-Paul Kahl, the duo performs and commissions repertoire for clarinet and saxophone. Thus far the duo has commissioned composers from America, Australia, China, France, and Argentina, garnering new pieces in a variety of styles. The duo supports the commissioning of composers from underrepresented groups, seeking to aid the creation and promotion of their works. The duo can be heard on Gregory Wanamaker’s recent album, “Light and Shadows, Waves and Time,” released on Navona Records in 2018. They premiered Scott McAllister’s “Concerto Americana” for clarinet, saxophone, and wind ensemble in 2016 with the University of Florida Wind Symphony. Devoted to music education, the duo is active in teaching positions in the United States. They have given masterclasses, performances, and lectures at universities and conservatories throughout the US and Europe.
