Adopt A Bassoonist

How it Works:

Do you want to help a particular bassoonist?  Contact Jo Ann directly so that your donation is applied directly to that individual’s tuition.

You have the option of being recognized on this website.  We also like to share this good news on social media and during our end-of-session concert.  Please be sure to let Jo Ann know if you prefer to remain anonymous.
