Lyrical and lush clarinet with strings
Formed in 2019 while studying together at Te Kōkī, New Zealand School of Music, the Gemini Clarinet Quintet are first and foremost best friends. Ensemble members Leah, Ellen, Lauren, Hayden and Emily, are Wellington-based but whakapapa to various places around Aotearoa, UK, France, China, Netherlands and Samoa. They love music of all different styles, genres and cultural backgrounds, and enjoy bringing music they love to life with the people they love! The Gemini Clarinet Quintet are set to bring a lyrical lush set of pieces to Classical on Cuba 2022, including slow movements from well-loved clarinet quintets and a new piece by local jazz bassist Seth Boy. Expect a soothing and joyful session of your classical crawl!
