Rachel Condry

clarinetist, composer and improviser
Rachel Condry is an Oakland based clarinetist, composer and improviser whose music lives outside the margins of genre and expectation. She is a member of the improvising group Gestaltish and has also been known to occasionally play “heavy chamber music” with the bass clarinet quartet, Edmund Welles.

In 2005, Rachel made her Carnegie Hall debut as a member of The Matt Small Chamber Ensemble, a group that seamlessly blends jazz, and classical genres with free improvisation. She is also a founding member of the San Francisco Composer’s Chamber Orchestra and regularly curates performances for local composers, including her own. Rachel has an MFA from Mills College, a BM from Oberlin Conservatory and a BA from Oberlin College.
