 Instrumentation for clarinet choir
Author: ssterling 
Date:   2017-11-19 19:13

I've been working on a few pieces for an eight-piece clarinet choir I put together from members of the band, and aside from being performed by the ensemble, I'd like to (self-)publish them so other clarinet groups and sections can use it as well. However, the instrumentation is quite uncanny:

- 1 E-flat soprano
- 2 B-flat sopranos
- 1 E-flat alto
- 2 B-flat basses
- 1 E-flat contra-alto (or string bass)
- A percussionist

Most clarinet 'choir' arrangements I've seen are for three sopranos and a bass, yet I've seen university ensembles with upwards of twelve unique parts. It seems as if standard repertoire is for quartets and everything else is custom-arranged. With that being said, would the instrumentation pose an issue in having my piece being accepted by other groups?
