Bb & Alto clarinets Full-Boehm and Bass clarinets

Sheffield Clarinet Quartet
"NO STRINGS ATTACHED"

Providing music for weddings, functions, corporate events and concerts.

Please note: there have been, and may still be, other performing groups using the same name; 
we are the one in Sheffield.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Our players live in Sheffield (UK) or nearby North Derbyshire, and meet regularly to explore and enjoy the repertoire, 
and are available to give concerts or play for weddings, charity functions, and similar events. 

Our repertoire is varied, from pre-Baroque arrangements through to works from recent times;
our playing is of a high standard, and we aim to make our programmes enjoyable to all.
