They have feelings.
Hundreds of bassoons, literally hundreds, gathered at the 43rd annual meeting of the International Double Reed Society at New York University.

Those look like oboes to me…
I imagine they’re most angered by the fact that the photo is of oboes, not bassoons.
Hautboy, somebody made a mistake….
Oh dear! Norman doesn’t know his bassoon from his oboe.
No! This is a photo of the creche. Oboes grow up to be bassoons!
So, presumably, violins grow up to become cellos and basses, the viola being the obnoxious adolescent stage?
Now I understand.
An ill wind…that would be the oboe. Angry bassoon fail.
It was a very happy week for all the oboists and bassoonists (and performers on the contrabassoon, English horn, oboe d’amore, bass oboe, Heckelphone, etc.) in attendance at the annual IDRS conference.
There were many concerts, recitals, lectures, seminars, master classes, tributes, a competition, reading sessions, vendors, and even a flash mob.
I enjoyed performing with Contraband (mentioned in the article), as well as in a contrabassoon quintet recital.
