A year later, he was recommended to Leonard Bernstein and performed and recorded Saint-Saens’ “Carnival of the Animals” in a Young People’s Concert with the New York Philharmonic. 

Invited by composer Gian-Carlo Menotti in 1965 to perform at the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy, he played with such artists as Jacqueline DuPre, Richard Goode and Charles Wadsworth.

Also in 1965, Green won the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, giving his solo debut in New York in 1966.  He attended Yale University, where he studied with Keith Wilson and became Principal Clarinetist of the New Haven Symphony.

After receiving a BA in Theory and Composition from Yale, he continued his studies at the Juilliard School, where he studied with Joseph Allard, receiving an MS degree in Performance in 1972.   In 2007, he continued his musical studies at Florida International University, receiving an MM in Jazz Performance in 2009.
