The Bosque Bassoon Band is dedicated to furthering public knowledge about the bassoon through performances, clinics and educational demonstrations. After a hiatus due to COVID-19, we are back!
Beginning as a series of informal reading sessions by bassoonists in the Albuquerque and Santa Fe area, the Bosque Bassoon Band was formed in 2004 and has performed at a variety of venues--from coffee houses to growers' markets to performances by invitation at the International Double Reed Society (IDRS) conferences in Austin, Texas, in 2005 and in Ithaca, New York in 2007.
Unique among the already unique world of bassoon ensembles, the Bosque Bassoon Band is open to professional bassoonists, students of all ages and other professionals who also happen to play the bassoon.
Our library now consists of more than 435 titles--ranging from Mozart's Eine Kleine Nachtmusik and Pachelbel's Canon to Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever to light classics like Over the Rainbow to pieces composed specifically for the band.
We are always exploring new music! Consider hiring the Bosque Bassoon Band for your next event be it a wedding, bar mitzvah or private party. Check out the news and events page for upcoming performances!
