Any classical musicians here?
Are there any classical musicians here, what do you play?

I play the oboe principally and double on flute, sax, clarinet, and a lil bassoon.

Do you play oboe principally, or oboe on principle, or Principal oboe ?
Do you play them all at the same time ?
Serious, though. yes.

I'm audience.


I did percussion in my youth, including tympani plus glockenspiel.
I have tried for years to play guitar, but it may be hopeless.Weeping

*raises hand*

I remember there being one other classical guitarist on the forum, but I can't remember who. I'm grade 6, and recently upgraded to this piece of art:

When I was an undergrad I had a friend who played the oboe. We had quite a few pieces we used to play together. Too bad we went to different grad schools, I really miss those music sessions.

Piano. Sometimes harpsichord, if I'm around one.

I'm a classically trained vocalist (bass/baritone) and choral director. I got a masters degree in choral conducting three years ago, then realized that a career in teaching wasn't worth getting the DMA and putting in the time in high school teaching, and became an atheist so the church thing was no long a good option.

Big Grin Now I'm trying to become an IT guy. Still singing in a local semi-pro choir, though.

Does classic rock count? Then yes, guitar.

You raise an interesting question of how we define classical music I think. It does after all span about 900 years and isn't just restricted to music of the Classical Era (app 1750-1825). At least I don't think it's what the OP means. I think they mean classical music in the broader sense, including baroque, romantic, modern, etc.
I wouldn't count new agey music or movie soundtracks to mean classical music, but some people do.

I know you were probably joking about the whole classic rock thing, but I still think it's an interesting discussion to bring up.

So OP, how do you define classical music?

I played Tuba in my middle school and high school years. Orchestral and band. I loved it and am trying to get back in to it. Unfortunately the Tuba isn't very fun to play by yourself and I can't seem to find anyone who wants to accompany. :/

I play the claps at the end of classical music, does that count?
