Biography

The Canadian Bass Clarinet Association – ACCB (accb.ca) was founded in 2020 by Mélanie Bourassa and André Moisan. The ACCB aims to create a Canadian community, linked to international communities, around the bass clarinet. Its objectives are to inform members of what is happening internationally in terms of research related to the bass clarinet, to disseminate and keep up to date the interactive catalog of repertoire for bass clarinet created by Mélanie Bourassa, to organize concerts, symposiums, master classes and activities, and to create links between the student communities, amateur musicians, and professional musicians.

The Canadian Bass Clarinet Association performed at the Low Clarinet Festival, Phoenix, Arizona, last January and the ACCB  will be at the Palais Montcalm, Québec, April 2.
