 Temperature for an outdoor concert
Author: kdk 2017

Does anyone play in an ensemble that contractually sets a minimum air temperature for outdoor rehearsals or performances? What would any of you consider too chilly to play a clarinet/oboe/bassoon outside?

Anything lower than 62F becomes difficult for fingers to operate. I have not played in a CBA ensemble with a minimum temp clause, but I have been the victim of extraordinarily bad temps.

Bay Area, California

Anything that's too hot or too cold for any player's own comfort is too hot or too cold.
