Farallon Quintet, founded in the summer of 2012, is a dynamic Bay Area ensemble and the only professional chamber music group focused exclusively on the repertoire for clarinet quintetstring quartet plus clarinet. In addition to playing the classics, the quintet seeks to perform rarely heard works, innovative arrangements, and new music by living composers. With well over 600 existing clarinet quintets to choose from, the ensemble offers diverse and engaging programs to the general public. In addition to formal concerts, the musicians look for opportunities to present informal educational programs at such venues as schools, hospitals, museums, and retirement communities. To date, the ensemble has commissioned and premiered new works by Chad Cannon, Durwynne Hsieh, Jay Sydeman, Jose Gonzalez Granero, Peter Josheff, and Emily Onderdonk.

The quintet is made up of leading Bay Area musiciansNatalie Parker, clarinet; Dan Flanagan and Matthew Oshida, violins; Elizabeth Prior, viola; Jonah Kim, cellowho are principal players in such orchestras as the San Francisco Ballet, Santa Rosa Symphony, Marin Symphony, Berkeley Symphony, Fremont Symphony, Modesto Symphony, and the Sacramento Philharmonic. As a group, the quintet is currently ensemble-in-residence at Old First Concerts in San Francisco and recently received grants from San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music and the Barlow Endowment for Music Composition. Their 2014-15 season consisted of over 20 performances throughout Northern California, sextet collaborations with pianist Jon Nakamatsu, and several new music commissions.

The group takes its name from the Farallon Islands, located right off the coast of San Francisco. In addition to being a landmark location close to where the players live and work, its meaningpillar or steep rock in Spanishindicates the groups vision to become an important pillar or rock in classical music by building awareness around the lesser known yet musically significant clarinet quintet repertoire. The Farallon Islands also represent the groups inspiration which is founded in the simplicity and beauty of nature. In fact, the group is known to intersperse rehearsals with hikes in the mountains and road tripsall with the intent to discover the natural beauties of Northern California.
