At the beginning of the month we hired Gareth Thomas as our new Second Bassoonist!
Currently Principal Bassoonist with the Toledo Symphony, Gareth's teachers included John Clouser and Christopher Millard. He is originally from Ottawa, Cananda.
He will play with us next month for a series of concerts and then start formally after the New Year.
It will feel good to have a complete section again after a few years of vacancies.
