About Us

The Council of Canadian Bassoonists is dedicated to introducing diverse audiences to the bassoon through musical performances and educational enrichment. We are an organization of professional bassoonists, teachers, students and friends of the bassoon. Our website is a meeting place where Canadian bassoonists can share their personal stories and exchange ideas.


Through workshops and performances, both live and recorded, we give prospective bassoon players and listeners an opportunity to hear our instrument in solo and ensemble settings, presenting the bassoon in both traditional and new ways, and featuring the finest Canadian and foreign artists.

We sponsor both live and online events that bring students and professionals together. We can connect students with approved mentors, as well as advice about reeds and instruments. As a registered charity, we supply tax receipts for all donations, including both monetary and equipment donations.


The Board of the Council of Canadian Bassoonists includes prominent bassoonists, educators and industry advisors from across the country.
