Bournville Clarinet Choir
We were founded by Nigel Wood in 2015, originally as a one year community music project funded by a Vision Award from Bournville Village Trust. Bournville is a famous ‘model’ garden village in a suburb of Birmingham, England, well known as the home of Cadbury’s chocolate.
The choir has become a well-established music ensemble with a membership of around twenty players from Birmingham and further afield. We rehearse fortnightly (in term time), give several concerts locally throughout the year and hold occasional workshops and even appeared on More 4’s “All Gardens Great and Small”.
Although the line-up of instruments is fairly standard (from the tiny Eb clarinet down to the impressive Contrabass), the choir’s repertoire is unique and challenging, spans the centuries and includes myriad genres. Our musical director customises the music to suit the players’ talents, and programming blends a mixture of original compositions and arrangements alongside standard repertoire.
