Clarinets is one of Blowsoc’s unauditioned ensembles which welcomes any clarinettist to come along. The weekly rehearsals enable players the opportunity to try out the Bass Clarinet or Eb clarinet as well as improving their skills on their own clarinet. The repertoire includes a great mix of classical, jazz and film music and they are always welcome to trying out pieces that students have composed themselves. They play in a range of concerts throughout the year and last year they frequently took part in the Blowsoc Outreach programme by playing at local schools and busking in the city. At the end of the year they elect the new committee which includes a manager and conductors. They are a very friendly and approachable group of people who would love some new players. They play, laugh and enjoy some biscuits too!
