    I'm always here Fletch!

    I got into the University Symphony Orchestra playing bass clarinet for Arthur Bliss' Colour Symphony!! Really shocked!
    The bass clarinet is one of the most gorgeous sounds imaginable! I don't know the Bliss but I imagine it's a big one. :rolleyes:
    I'm just about to play baritone sax for our concert band (I stand in for whatever is missing). I love playing bari but when I play bottom As, my eyes vibrate so much I can't read the music.

    I suppose there aren't many institutions that run to a new bass clarinet - ours is appaling and the bell keeps falling off. Nice new Yamaha bari tho'
