OAE Principal clarinet Katherine Spencer joins Netty for a cuppa in a brimming episode. They talk about nickname origins, a clarinet obsession and other entertaining stories involving some chickens, a pony and diving.

Deep within Glyndebourne territory, amidst the Don Giovanni rehearsals for the summer, Katherine Spencer (aka Waffy) joins Netty and spills the tea. Katherine talks about her very first encounter with the OAE, what music means to her, an unprecedented career in belly dancing and her intriguing experiences as a wind player of performing in different locations with diverse backgrounds.

Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
