Where can you find a bell, a boot, a wing, and a crook all in one place? Do you give up? On a bassoon! Not only is this instrument made of parts with odd sounding names; it’s also indispensible if you want to play the sound of a helicopter taking  off. On this concert, it will be joined by its close relative the oboe.

If he reminds you of a wizard, it’s no coincidence. What magic tricks does he have up his sleeve this time?
