Eb and Bb

Ionian Clarinet Choir

We are Europe’s oldest clarinet choir, having been formed in 1970.

Our players cover the full range of clarinets from Eb to Contrabass. Occasionally, we even use the ridiculously small – and very rare – Ab clarinet, and the cute Basset Hound. [Check this - doesn't seem right. Ed.]

Recent events have included a day’s workshop in Kent exploring the music of Liz Sharma, a recording day at the University of Surrey, and concerts in London and Hertfordshire.

We’re looking for more players - particularly to play Bb, but if you also play other clarinets, so much the better.

Christ Church Hall,
Oakleigh Park North
