Our mission is to encourage the education and performance of clarinet and wind instruments through festivals, school visits, workshops,
concerts, and more, in Western Washington and beyond.
Clarinettissimo is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable corporation registered in Washington State. It started in 2001, when Sean Osborn produced the first Clarinettissimo concert. Since then,
it has grown to a weekend-long festival, and a concert series. We now run the Orca Concert Series, which includes the
Clarinettissimo Clarinet Festival, a free festival of concerts, master-classes, workshops, vendors, and a community clarinet choir, now in its 17th year. We also
do school visits, including performances, workshops, coachings or other educational activities. Please contact us to arrange a school concert
or to volunteer.
Donations are Tax-Deductable.
Everyone deserves access to great live music.
Live music makes vibrant communities.
Chamber music with wind instruments is an important but neglected art form.
Clarinet education and performance are important.
