NEW WEBSITE WILL BE LAUNCHED VERY SHORTLY!

Next month, I will be launching my new concert series, Bassoon Out Loud at Heliconian Hall in Toronto.

The series will feature bassoon and all it’s collaborators, and launches on August 15 at 7 pm with Bassoon Out Loud – The Company You Keep.  I will play Telemann, Lussier, Braun, Scarlatti and a single Mignone.  Joined by lifelong friend and teacher extraordinaire, Leslie Magowan (and recovering bassoonist) who will read from her book, What I Learned In School (or as she sometimes calls it, Teaching: How Hard Can It Be?!?).

The second concert, Bassoon Out Loud – Ophelia Speaks, will be on September 15, featuring music for bassoon and strings (Vivaldi, Lussier, Gebauer, Devienne & Francaix) with solo works by members of the string quintet.

Last week I celebrated my first year in my new house/town with the world-beat-rock-sax-jam band, Ouroboros and singer/songwriter Lucas Rogerson, then a week in Memphis (wooooohoo!), then off to Ottawa’s Chamberfest with Guy Few to play a recital at the National Gallery (another version of Shades of Play), then back to Toronto for Beethoven Septet and a Britten chamber opera with Toronto Summer Music Festival,  then to Nova Scotia to play concerti and chamber music and the premiere of beautiful new solo work, ‘squeezed from wood’ for bassoon and orchestra by Lucas Oickle with the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra and their dynamic conductor, Dinuk Wijeratne. New website coming this summer and it will hold a direct booking link plus new merchandise (T shirts!) and  catalogue of all my art, over 50 works, including many that are for sale along with those already in private collections.

Please stay in touch and I hope to play for/with you soon!
