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 by all.
Some of the Playdays are listed
below in reverse order with the latest at the top.
Unfortunately there have been no Playdays since 2014 as
they were deemed financially unviable. Hopefully they
will be resurrected sometime in the future.
