Second Bassoon“What I really appreciate about the CCO is how intimate the music-making is. It’s completely different to play in a chamber orchestra as opposed to a large symphonic group. And since I spend most of my time in larger ensembles, it’s really special to get to play with the CCO, playing different repertoire in such a personal, intimate setting.”
