NEED Bb CLARINET PLAYERS! Piano For Us Ensemble

Hello Clarinet Players! I am from the Piano For Us Group! We (the group admins) are making an Ensemble for lots of players. We need 1 Bb CLARINET player! This is what is going to happen:  The Group Admins will assign a song and then we will create a Musescore of it. Once we have done the Musescore score, we will assign the song to everybody! Then everybody has a choice either to video record yourself play or create an audio recording. If you do a video record, when we make our final video and we combine all of the audio, there will your video of you playing! You may wonder, how will we play all on the same beat? Answer: Everybody will have a metronome on and have a earbud in their ear and play along with the Metronome. Everybody will turn in their audio recording and me and Edward and Major and Minor will make the video, OR IF ANYBODY IS A VIDEO EDITOR!! and we MIGHT make a YouTube channel and start our awesome project! Remember if you do not want to be on camera, just audio record yourself! We are going to have so much fun! Please Join! The first PERSON THAT MESSAGE ME THROUGH MUSESCORE are in!  Our Group :) https://musescore.com/groups/piano-for-us-ensemble

Upcoming contest: 15th January Musical Cryptogram

My friends sometimes ask me to translate his or her name into a musical composition. I must confess that I love these activities as it forces you to make a melodic line out of it. So my challenge is:

Make a piece of music out of a name (can be anyone's)
Pieces should be longer than one minute and less than 3 minutes.
If those who are confused in how to use cryptograms then here is one way you could do this (French method):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Musical_cryptogram

I would judge your pieces based on originality, how beautiful it is and bonus if difficult names are used. 
Please in your titles that you need to state the name of the person
The winner will have their piece upvoted and will be followed by me.

Variation on a theme contest (Ended)

It is about the time of the anniversary of the death of my beloved grandfather. As I think I have not done enough deeds for him before he passed away, I would honour him with a contest. I would like you to make a variation on this theme by Schumann. I gave you historical background on the piece in the description of the work.

Woodwind quintet arrangement of a double bass sonata

Dear Woodwinds, I have now finished my arrangement of Robert Fuchs' sonata for double bass and piano from 1913, whereby the piano is transformed into a wind quintet. I had a lot of fun making it and I think that shines through in the final result. I already posted about this a year ago but I only had one movement sketched out back then. Please have a listen, it might be fun.
