  • Claribel is celebrating its 20th anniversary at Midwest 2012 (founded in September 1992). This clinic will tell you the story of Claribel’s success during the past twenty years. It is a story of setting the right goals from the beginning, believing in the talent and strength of each member, and believing in the unique power of true friendship and respect for each individual.

  • Guido Six was just 18 years old when he passed the examination to perform as a military musician in the Band of the Gendarmerie. It was there that he met his predecessor Roland Cardon, eventually following him as director of the Ostend Conservatory in Belgium. Guido eventually became professor of clarinet and pedagogical coordinator. His Claribel Clarinet Choir, which began in 1992, experienced many successes for their performances at international music festivals. Six is also chairman of the Music Association of West Flanderd and continues to organizes his clarinet internship in Oostduinkerke. The Conservatory of Oostende serves as home for the Belgian Clarinet Academy, an international summer course for preprofessional clarinetists. Several world renowned clarinetists join Guido for a fascinating and instructive week in the most beautiful of the Flemish coastal cities each summer.
