We are an organization of professional bassoonists, teachers and students devoted to promoting the bassoon and in particular, helping students in remote parts of Canada to receive the support they need. And by remote, we mean locations that don’t have easy access to bassoon teachers and instruments (just about everywhere).
Through education and performances, both live and on CD, we give prospective bassoon players and listeners an opportunity to hear our noble instrument and become enchanted by it, just as we were—and are!

We also sponsor concerts and recordings involving bassoonists in solo and ensemble settings. Often these focus on presenting the bassoon in new and unusual ways, featuring the finest in Canadian bassoon playing as well as outstanding foreign artists.

On the education front, we put students in touch with teachers, and support them, sponsorING live events that bring students and professionals together. 

As a federally-registered education charity, we can supply tax receipts for all donations of equipment, including bassoons, reeds, and music, as well as funds for scholarships and instrument maintenance.

We know that a world of possibility exists within the voice of the complex and rare bassoon; we are willing to go the extra mile to support both the instrument and the students. Please join us!
