Rigoletto Performance at Four Seasons Center for the Performing Arts

It was great and rather exciting to be back in Toronto to play acting principal bassoon.  I played one performance of Rigoletto with no rehearsal and it was a blast from the past as I was a member of the Canadian Opera Company from 1989-93.  It is nice to work with old friends and hear the orchestra as I sat in the middle of the pit.  It is always a nostalgic feeling to return to orchestra life for a brief moment in time.
