Love the video on website introducing the band. Such a lovely sound, amazing ideas expressed, and two people who really love to perform. Wow.
Contrast to the amount of woodwinds I own, I'm really not doing so well in the doubling department compared to the rest of you! Lol
I've doubled on:
Pretty standard... Although right now I'm learning the oboe, and hope to join the community band, which I'd play with alongside playing the bassoon in the community orchestra.
I own/rent and play:
Eb, Bb, Bass Clarinets,
Alto, and Tenor Saxes
I have access to and would play:
Alto, Contrabass Clarinets,
and Baritone Saxophone
...I need to work on getting a double reed in that list.
Picc, flute and alto flute
Sop, alto and tenor saxes
Eb and Bb clarinet
I used to be a low reed player: bari, bassoon, bs clt and clarinet....sometimes flute....I decided to focus on high reeds...mainly, because it was too darn difficult to carry all them big horns to the gig. Playing Reed 1, I can fit the picc, flute and alto flute into a backpack (with a stand or two) and keep an alto in my hand, with soprano over the shoulder.
Since alto flute is so rare, I can fit the clarinet and oboe into the backpack.
I'm new to the forum. My main instrument is saxophone (sop/alto/tenor) but I can also double on piccolo/flute, clarinet, oboe and bassoon. Non standard doubles are penny whistle, Irish flute, uilleann pipes, and recorder (sop/alto/ten/bass). I just finished playing for a local community theater's music (Joseph) - the last time I played for a musical was over 30 years ago. I forgot how fun it was! I am hoping to play more in the future.
