Miami Bassoon Day 2019

Dear Bassoonists,

It is my pleasure to invite you to the campus of Miami University, in Oxford, OH, on February 17, 9:30am-5:00pm, for our 2019 Bassoon Day, hosted by the Miami University Department of Music. We are extremely fortunate to welcome special guests Keith Buncke (Principal Bassoon of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra), and the Double Reed Dish Podcast team of Jacqui Wilson (Bassoon Professor at Southeast Missouri State University) and Galit Kaunitz (Oboe Professor at The University of Southern Mississippi), and I hope you will join the Miami University bassoon community as we enjoy and learn from their expertise.

The 2019 Miami University Bassoon Day is open to middle and high school bassoonists, college bassoonists, and adult bassoonists. Sessions will include an interactive lecture masterclass with myself, a performance by the Miami University Bassoon Quartet, a live podcast recording with Double Reed Dish, a masterclass with Keith Buncke (open to participants of all levels by audition), and a recital featuring all of our guest artists. We will have a catered lunch, and parents of high school students will have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Chris Tanner, Chair of the Miami University Department of Music, in an information session about the university and our music program. Vendors will be present, including Bocal Majority, Weisberg Systems LLC, and Double or Nothing Reeds. I expect this to be an exciting day of music making, and I, along with all the members of the Miami University Bassoon Studio, hope you will consider joining us!
