We all know that the clarinet is the best instrument around, so it’s no surprise that these celebrities played (or still play!) the clarinet:
- Woody Allen
- Gloria Estefan (she also played guitar!)
- Sara Evans
- Alan Greenspan
- Alyson Hannigan
- Jimmy Kimmel
- Eva Longoria (she was also a drum major!)
- Harpo Marx (check out this video of him goofing off with Benny Goodman and Reginald Kell)
- Nicki Minaj
- Jenna Mourey aka Jenna Marbles
- Julia Roberts (she also played oboe!)
- Amanda Seyfried
- Steven Spielberg
- Kurt Vonnegut Jr.
- And one more “celebrity” worth mentioning: Jeffrey Dahmer. Although he is more infamous than famous, I thought this is an interesting bit of trivia.
Don’t forget to check out my list of movies, shows, and series which feature the clarinet!
Know any other clarinet-playing celebrities? Leave a comment below so I can add them to the list! Maybe we can invite them to the next clarinet convention…?
