Performance as Soloist with the National Symphony of Colombia in Bogotá
On May 20th I performed Mozart’s Concerto for Bassoon with the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá. The concert coincided with the ‘Encuentro Nacional de Fagotistas’ sponsored by the National Symphony of Colombia. As the featured guest artist, I taught master classes with bassoon students from across Colombia and judged the national bassoon competition. These events were expertly organized by Zulma Bautista, bassoonist in the National Symphony. I was enamored by the country and its people and thrilled at the talent of the bassoon students.
