For the second year running, ADRS QLD in collaboration with the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University presented Bassoon-A-Rama, a fun day of bassoon ensemble music for young and old, beginners to advanced. The aim of the day was to inspire, and give budding bassoonists of all stages in their development a chance to play side by side with professionals, meet other bassoonists and have fun.
Madeline Nickelson (Year 9) and tutor Miriam Handsworth (tutor) from Redlands College, were among the large ensemble of 36 bassoonists.
Madeline Nickelson wrote, “Bassoon-a-rama was amazing again! I loved how they had mixed ability groups this year. It’s great being able to meet professional players. Can Bassoon-a-rama happen twice a year please?’
