We are very grateful to the continued support from Vandoren courtesy of Barnes & Mulins. The Vandoren compnay was founded in 1905. It quickly became the leader in reeds, mouthpieces and accessories for clarinets and saxophones.
The Vandoren company is a family business, founded by Eugène Van Doren, soloist at the Concerts Colonne orchestra. Continued by his son, clarinetist Robert Van Doren then by Bernard Van Doren, its actual President. Robert, Bernard’s son, joined the company in 2014.
