St. Louis Symphony donates bassoon to central Il school
"I wanted to play the bassoon, but our school doesn't have a bassoon I could borrow. And then the kids left and got on the bus and David pulled me aside. He was a little choked up and he said, 'do you think it would be appropriate for me to buy a bassoon for the Marissa school?"
Brewer says the school was thrilled at the prospect and on Tuesday, the entire bassoon section will head to Marissa to meet with the students and donate the brand new bassoon. For now, Austin Gilley will be its player.
