Vibrant and talented, The Claritones are perfect for background music at weddings, receptions, garden parties and corporate events. The quartet have a unique line-up, featuring three soprano clarinets and one bass clarinet, enabling them to play a wide range of music that showcases the lyrical beauty of the instrument.

The Claritones play classical music from Bach to Bartok, jazz standards from Gershwin to Acker Bilk, and pop melodies from The Beatles to Robbie Williams, all with great virtuosity.

We were extremely satisfied with The Claritones! Rupert, Wedding, Oxford

The musicians in the group have played with renowned orchestras such as the London Sinfonietta, the Philharmonia, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. All four are graduates of the Royal Academy of Music.

The quartet were recently voted into the top 50 in the Pizza Express Big Audition Competition (out of 7500 applicants) and they also work with “Live Music Now!” playing in schools and care homes.

The Claritones are professional, friendly, and always happy to arrange a favourite song for your event, giving it a new twist with their unique and original sound!
