By day Veronica is a banker but most evenings are spent rehearsing, practicing or taking her two kids to rehearsals or lessons. Neither of her children play the bassoon, yet, but she is thrilled that they both enjoy making music too.
Veronica Duval is an amateur bassoonist currently playing with the Huronia Symphony Orchestra in Barrie, Ontario. She also leads the flute section in the Georgian Shores Concert Band in Midland, Ontario. Originally from the Los Angeles, California area, she started playing and fell in love with the bassoon on St.Valentine’s day at the age of 14. Four years later, without much guidance or a single lesson she began studying at California State University, Long Beach and after 4 more years graduated with a B.A. in Music. In 2005 Veronica moved to Penetanguishene, Ontario to get married and was excited to be able to join the HSO and continue playing the bassoon.
