Ken Kunita

Originally from Hyogo, Japan, and now based in the Netherlands, Ken Kunita graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in bass clarinet and a master's degree in clarinet from Codarts. He played, among other things, at the Gergiev Festival with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and at the Opera Gala Concert with Sonya Yoncheva and the Mannheimer Philharmoniker, thereby strengthening his reputation in the music world.

Nuno Filipe Carvalho Cunha

The Portuguese Nuno Filipe Carvalho Cunha started his clarinet studies at the Academia de Musica de Castelo de Paiva in his home country, where he has been teaching clarinet at the Escola de Musica de Bnada de Bairros since 2013. In 2017 he was admitted to the bachelor's degree program at Codarts, where he is now following his master's degree with Julien Herve and Bruno Bonansea.

Abraham Edmundo Gómez Chapa

Abraham Gómez, a talented clarinetist and composer from Monterrey, Mexico, also studied at Codarts. As a composer, Abraham is self-taught and has made special achievements: his composition 'Astro Errante' won first place in the 14th Calefax composer competition in 2021.

Alicia Pallares Tello

Alicia Pallarés Tello, born in Andorra, Spain, completed her bachelor's degree in clarinet with honors in 2008 at the Conservatory of Music "Salvador Seguí" in Castellón, Spain. She then moved to the Netherlands to complete her master's studies at Codarts in 2013.
