2024 Clarinet Enthusiasts Workshop: Building Connections and Friendships


The ICA Clarinet Enthusiasts Committee presents a three-hour workshop, “Building Connections and Friendships,” on April 27, 2024 from 12 pm – 3 pm ET.

This participatory online clarinet workshop features group warm-ups, and a group ensemble (for you to play along via Zoom), as well as breakout rooms workshops with a more specialized focus. These sessions are designed to help you navigate the clarinet more easily (see the list of topics below). We also provide a sneak peak at a new commissioned work, entitled Friendship, written for amateur clarinetists by composer Kristen Denny Chambers. She will be our special guest in a masterclass featuring the movements of this new composition which will be premiered at ClarinetFest 2024 in Dublin in July. All of our breakout rooms and events will be recorded, so if you register and want to view more than one you will receive a link to the replay video after the event.
