Thomas Verity | Clarinet


Thomas’s musical experience encompasses orchestral performance, chamber music and solo recitals, recording projects, commissions, and teaching / education outreach work, as well as composition and improvisation.

 Thomas has performed as guest principal with orchestras including the Philharmonia, Hallé, BBC Philharmonic, BBC Concert Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Royal Northern Sinfonia. From 2011 to 2018 he was a member of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, and he is currently Associate Clarinet with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London. In September 2019 Thomas will take up the post of principal clarinet with Welsh National Opera.

As a member of the Sterling Trio, Thomas has performed in over one hundred concerts throughout the UK, including Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall, and St Martin-in-the-Fields, St James’s Piccadilly and the Queen Elizabeth Hall, London. Thomas’s recording of Peter Hope’s Clarinet Sonata (a work he also commissioned) was described as “sensitive and polished” (American Record Guide).

 And on a completely different note, Thomas plays with Klezmerish (, a classical / world music fusion quartet exploring a wide range of music from across the world. Performances to date have included three visits to The Music Room (Liverpool Philharmonic Hall), Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall and their London debut at the Green Note. The group were featured artists on BBC Radio 3’s “World on Three” in June 2017.
