At ClarinetFest 2009 in Porto, a group of European clarinetists decided to found the European Clarinet Association - ECA. A board of involved clarinetists from different European regions was formed under the leadership of Matthias Müller from Zurich.
The aims of the European Clarinet Association - ECA are:
- To enhance contact and communication among clarinetists and national clarinet societies.
- To organise activities and events in collaboration with national clarinet societies.
- To encourage and support European countries to found and maintain national societies by sharing experience and knowledge.
- To support the International Clarinet Association (ICA) with the organization of ClarinetFests in Europe.
- To disseminate and share information through a website.
- To publish updates on the activities of the ECA in The Clarinet magazine.
