London Community Clarinet Choir 2017

The London Community Clarinet Choir is excited to go into its fourth year of music making and we are welcoming all middle/high school students and community players of all ages and abilities.  A clarinet choir is a wonderful sounding ensemble with a wide variety of repertoire.  The LCCC is an opportunity to improve one’s ensemble and clarinet playing, explore different musical styles, and enjoy music making in a new and unique group…all at the same time!  

Registration proceeds will go to support the organization “Clarinets for Conservation” in Africa. This group promotes awareness of conservation of the endangered Mpingo tree (black grenadilla wood) by planting new trees, and musically engages students and members of the communities of Tanzania through learning the clarinet. http://www.clarinetsforconservation.org/ Each year we were able to sponsor clarinet teachers to travel there, sponsor several students in Korongoni Secondary School  to participate in the program, and plant many grenadilla trees.
