Five seconds after this moment, the cello player punched the bassoon player for poking him one too many times.
If the Philharmonic stormed The Bastille.
Playing beneath the stage was the pits.
This was the bassoonist breakout solo piece. He was later shamed out of the bassoonist society because he was found to be experimenting with other instruments.
I remember well the book “Don’t feed bananas to the bassoon.” Silly but memorable.
“In-a-gadda-da-vida, honey….” Johann’s bassoon solo sets off the first mosh pit in Viennese Staatsoper history!
There’s always one guy in the crowd that looks up the ballerinas’ skirts.
Bassoon: an ill wind that nobody blows good.
Before “Free Bird”, audiences would yell “Swan Lake”
Moon / June / spoon / bassoon.
First attempt at vaping
bill was a bassoon bong maestro, as you can tell from his vacant expression…
Roger realized later that he could have picked up way more chicks playing the saxophone.
This is a really weird seating arrangement for an orchestra.
Beautiful music and beautiful dancers. A lot who think they are, of course.
Very en pointe….
Rock on Dude!
I understand that the next issue of “Buffoon Aficionado” will feature the orange gas giant from the oval office on it’s cover.
Degas like to symbolically portray his friends and enemies in his paintings. There’s a darned good reason he’s got Roland blowing that bassoon!
Jammed in like sardines in a can. If I get another cello bow up the keester I’m gonna hit a high EEEEEEE!
Nobody ever had a fever where the only cure was more bassoon.
Life is but a bassoon…..sha-boom, sha-boom.
“Excuse me Mr. Conductor, sir, but if that bassoonist hits me in the arm just ONE MORE TIME with his instrument, I’m gonna’ lop his reed off!”

Posing for this painting proved particularly challenging for the ballet dancers.
You’ve got to be some kind of loon/to devote yourself to the bassoon/ it demands far more sweat/than a mere clarinet/and it’s worse to clean than a spittoon.
The orchestra were all dreading the next step: the marching performance during half-time.
Felix the base player looking at Herman(on oboe) and wishing he could have something to blow too.
I guess no one else sees a lizard creature jumping around in the orchestra pit like I do. It was the first thing I saw.
All the double reed players really loved Jeff Spicoli’s new invention, the “Bongsoon!”
