Oh this is awesome. A bassoon thread. I have a very unstable relationship with my bassoon... sometimes we get along; but most of the time not. I've been playing more bassoon than oboe lately, and it's really causing me to like bassoon less and less....
BUT... on of the orchestras I play in has just bought an English horn, and it will be mine. estimated ship date is the 15th... so it will be in my hands in 2 weeks (+-) !!!!
And to answer your question, no I don't know any bassoon players in Boston. Now, if you needed someone in Salt Lake, Boise, or Iowa, I could help you
