The 2nd Annual October Bassoon Ensemble Festival
Understanding the importance of playing with other musicians, Professor of Bassoon Kristin Wolfe Jensen resolved to find a way for her students to play together safely after the pandemic hit in spring 2020. That's how she came up with the October Bassoon Ensemble Festival. Her students put on a physically distanced live performance at Mueller Park, just a few minutes north of UT Austin's campus, to the delight of anyone in the park that day willing to watch and listen.
Jensen and her students had so much fun it's now an annual tradition!
