Most people don’t think of the bassoon as a solo instrument but Chuck Ullery, former principal bassoonist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, will prove it is an instrument worthy of the moniker. In addition to performing, Ullery will deliver his informative, and at times hilarious, preamble, “Bassoon 101″.
