The Wind Ensemble is excited to be joined by Ian Hopkin. As principle bassoon of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, Ian has become known across Canada as one of the most exciting and talented young bassoonists. A Dalhousie University graduate in Neuroscience (before pursuing music degrees), Ian makes his return to the east coast with the ensemble to perform the Canadian Premiere of Luke Ellard’s concertoThe Seer. This wonderfully ethereal work is programmed with orchestral transcriptions of the works of Beethoven, Greig, and Bach, as well as wind works by Enescu.
