Dark in the Song Contemporary Bassoon Collective: Rachael Elliott, Mike Harley, Lynn Hileman, Peter Kolkay, and Saxton Rose, bassoons

Called a "bassoon supergroup" by the American Music Center, Dark in the Song was formed in 2010 by five of the most dynamic and accomplished young bassoon players and teacher in the U. S.  We are committed to leading the development of an adventurous and diverse new body of repertoire for bassoon ensembles.  Through commissioning, performing, recording arranging, educating audiences, and teaching a new generation of open-minded players, we seek to bring the bassoon and bassoon ensembles to the forefront of 21st century music making.
