Buffet Crampon has announced a partnership with the International Clarinet Association (ICA), the global community of clarinetists and clarinet enthusiasts.

This partnership, initiated during these difficult times, is a joint effort to offer new memberships to clarinetists worldwide.

Effective July 1, 2020, Buffet Crampon will include information in each clarinet purchase on free individual enrollment in the International Clarinet Association (a $50 value). Any customer purchasing a Buffet Crampon student, intermediate or professional clarinet will have the opportunity to become a member of the ICA for one-year, effective from the time of purchase and enrollment (offer extended to new members only).

Purchased clarinets during the promotion will have an enclosed card with activation/enrollment instructions. The promotion is effective on all new Buffet Crampon clarinets purchased before December 31, 2021.

Mitchell Estrin, president of the International Clarinet Association, touts the promotion as “an exciting new way to invite clarinetists to join the ICA. We are in unprecedented times and the ICA is trying to do everything we can to keep the worldwide clarinet community united and connected.”

Buffet Crampon USA president & CEO François Kloc adds, “It’s exciting to partner with Mitch and the ICA on this bold initiative. Given the difficult times we are all living in, I am happy we are able to work with the ICA to give clarinetists everywhere the opportunity to enroll in the world’s premiere clarinet community.”

In addition to printed enrollment information included with new Buffet Crampon clarinets, more may be learned by visiting the ICA website, or the Buffet Crampon website.
