Allen Hamrick, bassoon

Music Genre: 
Porchfest Sub Genre: 
Band Description: 

I am a classically trained bassoonist with a specialization in historical performance. I am a freelancer and have played with many organizations across the state, the country, and internationally, including our very own Handel and Haydn, Boston Baroque, and Boston Early Music Festival. I hold degrees from Indiana University, University of North Carolina School of the Arts, and The Juilliard School. I strive to be able to play as much of the historical gamut as possible, playing the appropriate historical version of the bassoon as called for by the music.

Robert Kendall and the Impromptus

Band Description: 

It’s hard to know what to say about The Impromptus. That’s because the band is You. You’ll select the instruments and the style and guide your high-strung but friendly virtual musicians through their performance. While you’re at it, you’ll choreograph an animated visual artwork that echoes the (presumably ingenious) music flowing from your fingertips.
