Hi Stephan, thank you for starting this wonderful project! As an avid student bass clarinettist Harry Sparnaay has been an inspiration to me. As I am based in Australia, I won't likely be able to come to Belgium, but still I'd like to support the you and the rest of the four new brothers and the bass clarinet community! So here's a 50 EUR donation. Keep up the great work!
