Vocal Bocal Bassoon Quartet in Concert
Sunday, April 30, 4:00 pm
Please join us for an hour of delightfully different enertainment!
Matthew Banks' Vocal Bocal Bassoon Quartet came together at Texas A&M University at Commerce in September, 2016. The members have diverse backgrounds and aspirations but share a passion for promoting the bassoon by playing sophicated, complex and beautiful music. The instrument's extreme flexibility, depth of expression and more than three octaves of beautiful tone make it voice unique and well-loved by composers.
They will perform the music of Bach, Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and othe great classical composers. They also specialize in jazz,with a distinctly baroque twist, and peforms one of the best standards from the American Songbook including folksongs and patriotic tunes, arranged by member Matthew Banks.
They are raising funds to travel to the Inernational Double Reed Society Conference at Lawrence University in Appleton, WI, June 20-24, 2017.
