Smart Bets: Welcome to the Bassooniverse

To close out its 18th season, Pan Harmonia turns its attention to one of the less famous woodwinds and offers a pair of shows by a quartet of bassoons. The chamber music repertory company’s resident bassoonist, Rosalind Buda, will be joined by Susan Cohen, Jennifer Anderson and Will Peebles for a program of classical, romantic and modern works by Michel Corrette, Henri Tomasi, Alec Wilder, Amber Ferenz Spuller, TG Febonio and others. Dubbed Welcome to the Bassooniverse, the concerts will take place on Friday, May 18, at 7:30 p.m. at St. James Episcopal Church in Black Mountain, and Sunday, May 20, at 3 p.m. at Biltmore United Methodist Church. Free, but donations accepted. Photo courtesy of Pan Harmonia
