Jeff Anderle is a pioneer in the world of low reeds, working as a performer, commissioner, and advocate for innovative new music.

 

He is a member of the bass clarinet duo Sqwonk, which infuses aspects of classical, folk and popular music into its own distinct style; Splinter Reeds, a reed quintet dedicated to new innovative music; and the virtuosic heavy metal bass clarinet quartet Edmund Welles.  

 

He is also a clarinetist in the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and principal bass clarinet of the Monterey Symphony, and performs regularly with a wide range of music institutions from orchestras (San Francisco Symphony, Magik*Magik Orchestra) to diverse chamber music ensembles (Telegraph Quartet, Friction Quartet, Left Coast Chamber Ensemble). 

 

As a soloist, he has performed concertos with the SF Chamber Orchestra, One Found Sound, La Jolla Symphony, Minnesota Philharmonic, and the wind octet Nomad Session, and has been featured nationally at concert series and festivals (Kronos Festival, Bang on a Can Marathon, Omaha Under the Radar, ClarinetFest, Festival of New American Music). Through these various projects, he has commissioned or premiered over 200 works.


A passionate educator, Jeff is chair of the woodwind department at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music where he teaches clarinet, bass clarinet, chamber music, technology, and professional development, and he has given masterclasses across the country on these topics. He holds a M.M. from SFCM and a B.A. from UCLA.

 

An advocate for contemporary music, he was a founding co-director of Switchboard Music, a presenting organization which featured hundreds of innovative musicians through its annual marathon and concert series during its 10 year history. Jeff is a Selmer Paris Performing Artist, performing on Presence clarinets and a Privilege bass clarinet.
