Dear Friends and Family of The OSU ClariNetwork Ensemble,

We are grateful for the success of our Buckeye Funder campaign thus far, THANK YOU, sincerely! Our project is now in the last week period. We are still working hard to achieve our $10,000 goal.

We would like to share this update featuring an interview with our resident arranger, Dr. Evan Lynch. Here Dr. Lynch discusses about his Finlandia arrangement and its process. Watch this video below to see how this piece come to life!

The OSU ClariNetwork Ensemble is very fortunate and thrilled to premiere Dr. Lynch's arrangement at the ClarinetFest® 2017 this July! This experience will continue to bond together our musicians, and have a profound impact on their careers. Please consider supporting us to travel and perform in Orlando, Florida.

Thank you very much for your continuing support,

"Úlet" Sneak Peek!

May 21, 2017

Dear friends, clarinet and music lovers, and supporters of the OSU ClariNetwork Ensemble,

Happy Sunday! We are proud to present highlights of popular tunes from clarinet repertoire! Can you name them all?!

One of the pieces we are going to perform at the ClarinetFest® 2017 in Orlando, Florida, this summer is called "Úlet" which means Flight in Czech. Aleš Pavlorek, Czech clarinetist-composer, indeed takes the listeners through a flight of clarinet repertoire staples. These pieces are what Christopher Purdy, Host of Music in Mid-Ohio live broadcasts, would call "Music you know you know, even if you don't know you know it." This masterful collage includes major pieces from composers such as Weber, Brahms, and Saint-Saëns. The piece ends excitingly with a classic entertaining tune.

This update will feature a sneak peek of the OSU ClariNetwork Ensemble rehearsal of Pavlorek's "Úlet" for five clarinets and two bass clarinets! 

We hope you enjoy clarinet music as much as we do! Please share it with your friends and families!

Thank you very much for your continuing support,

Choose a giving level


E-flat Sopranino Clarinet

The E-flat clarinet is one of the smallest and most mischievous​ members of the clarinet family.


B-flat Soprano Clarinet

From Mozart to Benny Goodman to The Beatles. The B-flat clarinet is the most commonly used today in Classical, Jazz, Klezmer, Folk, Pop, and ​more!


The "A" Clarinet

Prefer a "darker/ mellower tone"? Meet the "A Clarinet." Almost identical to the B-flat clarinet in appearance, the A clarinet is pitched a half-step lower!


Basset Horn (aka Basset Hound)

One of Mozart's favorite instruments, the basset horn is a unique gem in the clarinet family! It is rarely heard in any ensemble today. Help us bring our basset horn and its player, Michael Bednarsky, to perform in Orlando!


Bass Clarinet

It plays an octave lower than the soprano B-flat clarinet. The Italians called the instrument glicibarifono (pronounce: gleetchee bariphono, meaning "sweet-deep-sounder")


B-flat Contrabass Clarinet

The lowest instrument of the clarinet choir! It is often used in film music for a "surreal" kind of sound. Our "Beast Paperclip" is known to be the be​st friend of its player, Bailey Clanin!


Sponsor a Student

The estimated cost for each clarinetist to attend the 5-day convention is $470, please consider giving full sponsorship to a clarinetist!
