          As the Autumn months are progressing, the Newsletter unfolds events and competitions that are followed with interest from players on the Global scale.   Some new innovations have been implemented including the below statement about future Newsletter Pages announcing events during those time periods.  Everyone is encouraged to follow these pages to plan to go to them.  For students and interested players, it is encouraged to attend a Grand scale Conference and a workshop per year to meet as many like-interested people as possible to advance your interests, careers, and contacts.  Many players have benefited from these ideas.  WKA is probably the most definitive resource for players seeking to find the ultimate role models and teachers who will make a difference in their performance lives along with the opportunities made available to see their goals met.

Antony Pay, acclaimed British Clarinetist in Performance of Mozart with Period Instruments in Jerusalem, Israel in Fall 2007

          Photo Galleries are posted with the accomplishments of many fine Clarinetists who have made a success on a consistent level, including International tours, Solo performances, and Teaching successes.  WKA members are encouraged to send in anecdotal photos of important events so they can be noted. 

 A new event announcement method is now implemented to assist WKA members in their pursual of events. In each quarterly Newsletter segment, the events are posted in date order on those month pages only to avoid repeated postings and possible confusion. 

Newsletters are constantly updated like the Hot News Pages as events and news is variable and it is important to be as up to date as possible.


 The Greenland Art Center will be the place of music, musicians, clarinetists

         The below information about the renovation of this historic cultural resource in Hungary is an incredible opportunity for the World Clarinet Community to participate in this project.  Eastern Europe is very rich in music and art as can be seen in major cities as Budapest and other places where the cost of living and costs for fine things is much less than Central Europe.  The Directors of this project are Artist VIP WKA members, Joszef Balogh, and spouse Beatrix, who have been working on the development of this dream for several years, having founded the Windland Foundation, and holding several workshops and Festivals in Hungary.  Mr Balogh is an International Clarinet Soloist and authority on Klezmer and Folk music.  WKA is committed to providing as much Internet assistance to see this project make success.  All members should contact the Baloghs and offer support, as when the time may come when a festival opportunity arises this would be a cumulative reward for all who contributed to it.

Greetings from Hungary!


The Windland Music Foundation with its Artistic Leader, Jozsef Balogh is pleased to announce its new project and new webpage.

 The Greenland Art Center will be the place of music, musicians, clarinetists.

The Greenland Art Center will be in an old palace from the XVIII. century, and its reconstruction will be between 2007-2011.

We will establish also the HANZI in the Palace, the  International Music Institute of Hearing Impaired, who play clarinet also.

 We look forward to your support!

Internationales Symposium in Mautern in der Steiermark

  1. Klarinetten-Symposium mit Kurs für Klarinetten-Chor

von 28. bis 30. September 2007 in Mautern/Stmk.

Die "Österreichische Klarinetten-Gesellschaft - Austrian Clarinet Society (ACS)" wurde im Oktober 2006 ins Leben gerufen. Wir wenden uns an alle, die sich mit der Klarinette beschäftigen, ob sie nun im Sinfonie-Orchester, im Blasorchester, in Musikvereinen oder in einem Kammermusik-Ensemble spielen.

Warum eine Österreichische Klarinetten-Gesellschaft? In einigen europäischen Ländern, wie beispielsweise in Deutschland oder in der Schweiz und vor allem in Amerika, gibt es bereits Zusammenschlüsse der Klarinettisten. In Österreich, mit der großen Klarinettentradition, war ein solches Kommunikationsforum lange überfällig. Wir wollen keine Vereinigung von Profis sein, sondern wir wollen vielmehr jene ansprechen, die sich mit der Klarinette beschäftigen, ob sie nun im Blasorchester, in Musikvereinen, im Sinfonieorchester, in einer Jazz Band oder in einem Kammermusik-Ensemble spielen.                              

Ein vorrangiges Ziel ist der Aufbau eines Klarinettenchors in Rahmen des Gründungssymposiums im September 2007. Mitmachen können dabei fortgeschrittene Schüler die eine entsprechende Spielpraxis erworben haben und vor allem auch Lehrer von Musikschulen sowie Klarinettisten/Innen jeden Alters. Es wird eine Auswahl an unterschiedlicher Literatur angeboten. Geleitet wird der Kurs von hervorragenden Klarinettisten, die in renommierten Kulturorchestern spielen und Lehrende an verschiedenen Institutionen der Musikausbildung sind. Künstlerischer Leiter des 1. Symposiums ist Dr. Friedrich Pfatschbacher, der u. a. auch das Klarinetten-Ensemble „Woodwind“ gründete.

Wir freuen uns natürlich auf die vorgesehenen Fachvorträge und Meisterkurse. Ganz besonders auf die Darbietungen der Klarinettenklassen. Wir werden die Entwicklung des Instrumentenbaus im Rahmen von Vorträgen und Ausstellungen verfolgen. Experten werden uns über den neuesten Stand informieren, genauso über Mundstücke und Blätter. Wir werden nicht alle Vorstellungen gleich verwirklichen können, doch ist die ACS für Fragen und Anregungen offen, und wo es möglich ist werden wir Aktivitäten fördern.


Alle 3 Tage:  Nichtmitglieder:      75,-/50,- Euro    Mitglieder der ACS: 50,-/35,- Euro

Freitag                                             30,-/20,-                                                 20,-/15,-                            

Samstag                                           30,-/20,-                                                 20,-/15,-

Sonntag                                           17,-/11,-                                                  14,-/09,-

*(ermäßigt: Schüler, Studenten, Rentner)

Nur Konzerte: 10,-/7,-

Der Betrag muss nach Bestätigung der verbindlichen Anmeldung auf das Konto bei der Bawag Knittelfeld, Konto Nr. 81610 006 663,  BLZ 14000 eingezahlt werden.

Hier gehts zur Anmeldung!  Anmeldungen für das Symposium werden ab März 2007 entgegengenommen!

 Buffet and Vandoren Schedule Third Annual Clarinet Ensemble Festival on October 13 & 14 2007

On the heels of two highly successful Buffet/Vandoren clarinet festivals, Buffet Crampon U.S.A and Vandoren have scheduled the third festival in Seattle.  The dates have been tentatively set for October 13 and 14. Vandoren artist and University of Florida Clarinet Professor Mitchell Estrin will again coordinate the performances, master classes and clinics. "We're very excited about this year."commented Estrin. "Based on our success of our past festivals, we expect a great festival.

The first clarinet choir festival focused on the unique literature and ensembles characteristic of clarinet choirs.

Clarinet Choir specialist Harvey Hermann, retired from the University of Illinois led the mass choir in a thrilling final concert.

Francois Kloc, Director of Marketing for Buffet Crampon U.S.A. and cosponsor conducted a clinic on the history of the clarinet. "This is an incredibly important event," commented Michael Skinner, president of DANSR, inc,

the Vandoren U.S. importer. "With the success of our past festivals, interest has already begun to grow."
