Host: Dr. Bruce Hammel, Associate Professor of Music (bassoon)

Join Dr. Hammel and guest artists Thomas Schneider (principal bassoon, Richmond Symphony Orchestra), Martin Gordon (assistant principal bassoon, Richmond Symphony Orchestra) and Ivy Haga (VCU Music Alum, freelance bassoonist and teacher), for the first ever Bassoon Quartet Day! Participating students will be placed into four quartets, each of which will be coached by one of our quartet day artists. A morning of rehearsals will be followed by a casual lunch with the artists, followed by master classes and quartet performances in the afternoon. The program will culminate in a performance by the VCU Music faculty bassoon quartet.

Bassoon Quartet Day will take place in The Depot, VCU’s historic and newly renovated railway station, and home to a state-of-the-art sound stage and infinity wall. All participants will have the opportunity to create video footage of themselves and/or their quartets, and have the digital footage for later use in whatever creative ways they choose!

To register, or for more information, contact Dr. Hammel, 828-4018 or email bhammel@vcu.edu.
