Guildhall School of Music and Drama bassoonists in action

Well the future of bassoonery is in good hands, with Meyrick Alexander and Gordon Laing (contra) and Stuart Russell(reed making) as professors there swelling the ranks of the collective bassoons at the school for this great rendition of “Bassoonists Holiday” (which sounds like it’s Fraser Jackson’s fab arrangement for the Calibans if I am not mistaken).

A great Super Mario trio with hats and choreography on the same youtube channel too! It never ceases to amaze me how bassoonists just naturally share this zany sense of humour. On a smaller scale we have our next outing on 24th July at St. Anne’s Kew in London with some great fun lined up! Maybe getting all our pupils involved for a grand finale is a good idea. So the world of bassoon ensembles is very much alive!
