The Boulder Bassoon Quartet has impressed a wide audience through substantive, engaging performances since 2006. Having performed in venues as diverse as concert halls and coffee shops, the Quartet is dedicated to expanding the repertoire for the bassoon quartet in a variety of genres through new arrangements and original compositions.
Each member attended the University of Colorado College of Music where they studied with Yoshiyuki Ishikawa. Members of the Quartet perform regularly with major professional ensembles throughout Colorado such as the Colorado Music Festival, Colorado Ballet, Boulder Chamber Orchestra, and the Colorado MahlerFest Orchestra. They are active members of the arts community and committed to music education.
In 2011, they premiered Kent Hurd’s new piece, “So Cliche”, at the International Double Reed Society convention in Tempe, Arizona.
