Blue Feathers and Jazz

We have commissioned the hot jazz bassist Michael Occhipinti to write a new concerto for us --- Nadina (amplified bassoon and blue feathers), Guy (trumpet, piano, corno) and full orchestra.   This will go on the Canadian Concerti disc that we are recording in December.   The dress will be ready sooner than the music, but that is as it should be...

You should commission Paul Hanson to write a duet for the two of you. Electric, amplified funky bassoons and blue feathers.
