Festival Residencies at IU-Bloomington and Quartz Mountain
From July 18-23 I performed as principal bassoon and taught as part of the 2010 Indiana University Jacobs School of Music Summer Music Festival. The orchestra performance included works by Mahler, Strauss and Wagner with conductor, Lawrence Renes. A terrific festival orchestra and I really enjoyed working with the IU bassoon students.
I traveled directly to Oklahoma to perform and teach at the Quartz Mountain Music Festival and Orchestra Academy. Again working with some great bassoon students and performing as principal with the festival orchestra under Michael Palmer. This is a wonderful festival in a beautiful location (Oklahoma, who knew?). Of course I made a trip to Meers Store and Restaurant for one of their famous cheeseburgers.
