Bassoonist wins Mexico City competition

Carlos Lopez ('20 BM Bassoon) has just won First Prize in the Encuentro Nacional de Fagot Competition in Mexico City, Mexico. He traveled to the competition with support from the Schwob School as well as a grant from the Office of the Provost, and now his trio with Joonsu Kim ('18 BM Clarinet) and Juan Collazos ('19 MM Piano) will perform three recitals across Mexico City this weekend. He also had the opportunity in Mexico City to attend a master class with Sophie Dartigalongue, Principal Bassoon of the Vienna Philharmonic. Carlos is a student of Dr. Stephanie Patterson, Assistant Professor of Bassoon.
