    Harald Reinhart

    Harald started playing 
    double bass but switched over to clarinet when he was 16.  He was 
    lucky enough to get accepted to the Wuerzburg Conservatory and studied there with Frofessor Flackus for the next 5+ years. He continued to tutor Harald even during his medical school training.

    Harald performed the Weber clarinet concerto with the Academic Orchestra of Wuerzurg, and played chamber music with many  folks 
    both in Germany and the US.  Some years ago he did the Beethoven trio in Chicago.  Later, he joined the Doctor's Symphony in Philadelphia, and more recently, the Hamden Symphony here in CT. 

    Through the ACMP (Amateur Chamber Music Player) society, Harald has 
    found many fellow musicians in and around New Haven, and they had 
    plenty of 'Hausmusik" ever since.  Trained in classical music he had 
    never played with a band before joning the SCCB. 

    Harald's clarinets were made by H.  Wurlitzer; they are Oehler, not the Boehm system clarinets. It has a fuller sound but is harder to intonate and requires more lip control and heavier reeds than the more common  French/Boehm clarinets everybody is familiar with. 

    Harald is an infectious diseases physician by training and worked with Bayer for the last 12 years in antibiotic development.  Now he has been offered a position with Novartis to head their worldwide infectious diseases program and is in the process of relocating to NJ.   He said, "I am very sorry that my stint with the SCCB was such a short one; "I'll miss the
    camaraderie and especially my friends in the clarinet and woodwind 
    sections, and our conductor, Steve."
