A person who plays the Clarinet is a clarinettist so says the Wikipedia. Why I looked it up was because I came across a clarinettist when I had been to the church in Goa. Actually I was leaving the church after the Holy Mass when this man entered with a small rectangular box. The way he was holding the box, I realised that it had to be some musical instrument.
He was holding it with such care and reverence that I realised here is someone who cares for his instrument and surely he must be a good player too.
So I followed him and reached the choir section. I stood in the side lines and observed him, the way he was still holding on to the handle of the case, waiting for the congregation to leave the church so that he could open his case and assemble the clarinet.
I am not an expert in these wind instruments, but I think he had a saxophone and a clarinet (correct me if I am wrong).
Very reverently he assembled all the pieces and tested for the note clarity.
They say that when you go to a new church for the first time you can make three wishes and this was a real quaint little church. This is the Holy Family Church at Alto-Porvorim, Goa.
I liked this statue outside the church, something different from the normal statues.
The choir was supposed to sing for the first Holy Communion and I thought what better way to capture some music and song.
I managed to get some footage and put it together to make it into a 2 minute video.
Here it is for those who want to hear him play.
