ℹ️ About

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!

πŸ‘ͺ The Committee

Lucy Baker

Clarinets Manager

Hello, I'm Lucy and I am this year's Clarinets Manager. I'm a third year Natural Sciences student and I play the clarinet and soprano saxophone. This year I'm really looking forward to welcoming lots of new members and trying to increase the publicity of the clarinet ensemble. I'm also excited to play some student arrangements and compositions this year!

Adam Blakey

Clarinets Conductor

I'm Adam and I'm one of the Clarinet Conductors this year. I play (perhaps unsurprisingly) the clarinet, and I'm currently a first year Mathematics PhD student. I'm really positive about the year ahead and I'm really excited to be part of the Clarinets team making some awesome woodwind-y sounds!

Hannah Kemp

Clarinets Conductor

Hi, I'm Hannah and this year I am one of the conductors of Blowsoc's Clarinet Ensemble. I am in the 2nd year of an Environmental Geography PhD and I play the Oboe, although I like to dabble with other woodwind instruments as well! I am very excited to lead rehearsals and help create a fun and friendly atmosphere in the ensemble.
