Bloomsbury Band of Flutes & Clarinets

The ensemble

The Bloomsbury Band of flutes and clarinets is a dynamic and friendly ensemble of more than twenty adult players. The Band was formed in January 2010. At first we called the group BWE2 until it became established and was also rehearsing in Bloomsbury.

 

Membership is open to adults who play flute, clarinet or bass clarinet.

Our music

Our repertoire includes works composed over more than four hundred years and in a notably wide range of styles. The Bloomsbury Band has premiered many new arrangements and three new compositions.
