Not A Clarinet Choir is a mosaic; a collective of clarinetists from different backgrounds.
As a new group, we aim to explore the possibilities and push the boundaries of clarinet music, with a keen ear for detail, and an open mind for collaboration.

We will be presenting some familiar tunes such as Czárdás and Scarborough Fair, as well as a few clarinet ensemble favourites like A Miniature Town and A Picture Book without a Picture. Our highlight piece will be Lincolnshire Posy, a classic from the wind band literature, arranged for clarinet choir.
Going forward, we hope to push the envelope of what a clarinet choir can sound like, and pursue collaborations to present novel experiences while maintaining a high level of music-making.
