is a Playday?
Once or twice a year the Choir used to host a day of Clarinet
Choir Playing open to all adult clarinet players, who
needed to be at a standard equivalent to about grade 5
or above. These were extremely popular events and normally
attracted an excellently balanced choir, embracing the
usual clarinet choir range of instruments from Eb to ContraBasses.
In 2010 the choir celebrated its fiftieth Playday!
The Playdays were directed by the
TCC Musical Director, sometimes with guest conductors.
The intention was to play a wide and extensive repertoire,
rehearsing some pieces more thoroughly and playing through
others with very little rehearsal. Apart from the refreshment
stops it was a day of continuous playing being enjoyed
Unfortunately there have been no Playdays since 2014 as
they were deemed financially unviable. Hopefully they
will be resurrected sometime in the future.
