Tenor saxophonist silke welsch started with the clarinet. After playing clarinet in the county select orchestra for the first five seasons, she has now played tenor saxophone for the past five seasons.
Although she comes from a musical family, she is the first to learn an instrument. "There was a lot of singing in our family. I can remember how my parents and my grandmother often sang together with me", she tells. She came to the clarinet through her school friend corinna loffler, who also played the clarinet. Both learned the instrument from corinna's father, klemens loffler.
