DARK IN THE SONG is committed to leading the development of an adventurous and diverse new body of repertoire for bassoon ensembles. By working directly with composers to commission new pieces, performing, recording, arranging, educating audiences, and teaching a new generation of open-minded players, we seek to bring the bassoon to the forefront of 21st century music-making. Our recent appearances include the International Double Reed Society's 2010 and 2011 annual conferences, performances in North and South Carolina, and a residency at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. Upcoming residencies include South Carolina and upstate New York, culminating in the recording and November 2012 premiere and European tour of Michael Gordon's new concert-length work for seven bassoons, coordinated by bassoonist Dana Jessen.

We see ourselves as active participants in the continuing conversation between the vast range of musical styles that now make up contemporary art music - from modernism and the avant-garde to minimalism, popular music and rock, electronica, and folk and traditional music from around the world. If you'd like to join in the conversation, be it from the point of view of a composer, listener, performer, educator, patron, arts presenter, or curious onlooker, please don't hesitate to contact us.
