Virtual Glickman Popkin Bassoon Camp 2020
Welcome to the opening day of the GPBC 2020 virtual camp. For the first time since the origin of the annual Glickman Popkin Bassoon Camp we have a summer without the usual congregation of bassoons atop the mountain at Wildacres, N.C. resulting from the coronavirus lockdown. There are many of us, particularly those who have been attending this camp for decades, feeling this quite a loss come this Memorial Day. For those of you we offer a virtual camp as outlined above with a rather arbitrary selection of camp videos, inviting you to enjoy a cup of coffee and a bit of nostalgia. Selections have been made to give an overview of the camp with more emphasis on earlier years from 2005 forward. For our ‘old times’ special attempt has been made to include a couple of final concerts that feature opera spoofs by Harold Wevers which for a brief time were a feature of the camp’s closing GALA. Check in daily for uploads!
