There were copper bottom tympani in horse platoonsThundering, thundering all along the way.Double bell euphoniums and big bassoons,Each bassoon having it's big, fat say!
It just isn't every day that one gets to hear an ensemble of six bassoons, whatever the occasion. In this case, though, the occasion is the highly interesting and informative Darwin Day celebration at UT now through Wednesday. On Tuesday, head to the University Center Auditorium for a 7:00 pm performance of Music for Earthworms (A Darwinian Odyssey), a 2011 work for bassoon consort by Dan Welcher.--Meredith Willson, The Music Man
And what an ensemble! Participating are Eric Anderson, Chattanooga Symphony; Darrel Hale, Knoxville Symphony; Dawn Hartley, Nashville Symphony; James Lotz, Tennessee Tech University; Keith McClelland, University of Tennessee, Knoxville; and Lecolion Washington, University of Memphis.
