I had a wonderful time at the Glickman-Popkin Bassoon Camp in at the Wild Acres Retreat in Little Switzerland, North Carolina. As one of the featured artists, I had the joy of giving 4 masterclasses (including one on my freehand reed-making) and a small recital… but mostly it was the joy of working with such intensely curious and musical people of all ages. And I got to meet Lenny Hindell! Anyway, I drove there from my home, and was amazed at the beauty of the landscape. Later that month, I was asked to play in Montreal for a concert of Israel In Egypt on historical instruments… I have actually sold my baroque bassoon, but the new owner graciously let me take it out for one last romp! I’m headed to Ottawa next week for a Mozart Requiem, then have the rest of the summer to finish my new book[Solitary Refinement – scales,chords and concepts for the committed bassoonist], write my new show, renovate my house, get into photo-shoot-ready shape and, oh I dunno, continue to enjoy my life!
