Nathan Isaac clarinet

Nathan is a solo performer, orchestral clarinettist, teacher and orchestral librarian. Nathan has performed in many renowned venues such as Symphony Hall, Birmingham Town Hall, St David’s Hall and Wales Millennium Centre. He is a keen orchestral musician and has featured on radio broadcasts by Classic FM with RBC Pops Orchestra, and by BBC Radio Wales/Radio Cymru as part of a side-by-side orchestra featuring members of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales (NYOW) and BBC National Orchestra of Wales. Nathan has played with several ensembles at RBC, including the Symphony Orchestra, Opera Orchestra and Projects Orchestra, as well as the NYOW, CBSO Youth Orchestra and Arcadian Opera Orchestra. Nathan has also taken part in side- by-side sessions with the Welsh National Opera Orchestra and took part in the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) Training Scheme.

Nathan has developed a keen interest in contemporary music, and recently premiered a piece he commissioned the Welsh composer Nathan James Dearden to write at the Machynlleth Music Festival, as well as playing with new music ensemble Orchestra in the Shape of a Pear.

Nathan has a passion for inspiring the next generation of musicians. He teaches clarinet and saxophone, and has been a member of the RBC’s LEAP Ensemble for over four years, helping to take music out to different schools and organisations across the UK. 

Nathan is currently undertaking an Advanced Postgraduate Diploma at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire (RBC), where he received the Headley Music Scholarship. Nathan is specialising in bass clarinet with Mark O’Brien, while also studying clarinet with Joanna Patton and Oliver Janes.

When he isn’t playing the clarinet or bass clarinet, Nathan still manages to keep himself busy. He is a part time librarian at the CBSO and has recently taken up the position of Assistant Conductor with Bournville Clarinet Choir. He also occasionally sings with Noteworthy Mixed Choir, who are based in his hometown of Maesteg, South Wales.

Outside of music, Nathan loves sport. He used to swim for his county, as well as play football, golf and rugby at local and school level. Nowadays, Nathan prefers to watch sport, and particularly gets passionate when watching the Welsh rugby team. He also thoroughly enjoys cooking and spending time with his friends and family.
