Clowning Around

Most people don’t think of the bassoon as a solo instrument. Chuck Ullery, former principal bassoonist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, is considered one of the finest bassoonists in this country. In addition to performing, Ullery will deliver his informative, and at times hilarious, preamble, “Bassoon 101.”
