Welcome to the Minnesota Bassoon Association Website

Welcome to the website for the only active and unaffiliated bassoon club in the USA, and perhaps in the world! The Minnesota Bassoon Association has been presenting events regularly since 1983. A significant number of the world's most important bassoonists have been our guests during these 30 years. Let's continue that tradition, and perhaps one day you will be the world renowned bassoonist we feature! In any case we'd love to have you, especially if you love and are interested in the bassoon!
