Saxophonist, Flautist, Clarinettist
Trinity was a warm and supportive college where I had the opportunity to expand my horizons and practise a lot! The stand out ensemble for me was Bobby Lamb’s Big Band, not only were we schooled in the art of the Big Band but also on being a professional musician.Claire McInerney
