Bassoonists at IU benefit from being in an extremely active musical environment where hundreds of talented musicians are striving for the highest in musical achievement. 

Opportunities for performance include three concert bands, four jazz ensembles, marching band, five orchestras, woodwind quintets, and classical chamber groups. Many students find additional performance opportunities off-campus in regional orchestras.

Beyond the campus of Indiana University, our bassoon faculty perform as soloists, orchestral and chamber musicians throughout the United States and around the world and teach as guest artists in universities, conservatories, and festivals.
