Lori Freedman is a 21-century clarinet player.
She tours extensively, often sporting 3 or 4 instruments at a time, including the contrabass, bass, B-flat and E-flat clarinets. Continuing to draw from a unique and impressive array of works from the contemporary repertoire Freedman is equally at home performing her own compositions and those written by other musicians, often specifically for her. Both on stage and in the recording studio, Freedman delivers astonishing poetry to written and improvised music in the versatile roles as accapella soloist, featured soloist with ensemble, and as ensemble player. Her own catalogue of works written for a variety of instrumental combinations grows steadily and, in addition to this already full schedule, Freedman also coaches contemporary and improvised music to all instrumentalists and vocalists alike.
