Based in Cardiff, the Rosewood Clarinet Quartet was formed in September 2017 by Joanna James, Carwyn Thomas, Katherine Nunn and Jason Hill – four Master’s students at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama.
Within its first year, the quartet went from strength to strength, securing the Wind Plus Chamber Music Prize, being highly commended in the McGrenery Chamber Music Prize, and winning the June Emerson Wind Music Ensemble (Launchpad) Prize 2018. The Quartet have received coaching from, Nick Carpenter, Leslie Craven, Lenny Sayers, Martin Crook and the Household Division Saxophone Quartet.
They have also enjoyed raising money for charity, regularly working with Music in Hospitals and Care, and have performed as part of the Young Artists Programme at St David’s Hall, Cardiff. The group play a vast array of music from contemporary to popular.
