Rufus Olivier will be soloing with the Oakland East Bay Symphony next Friday night, and there is a nice article about him in Inside Bay Area. Of course you should first attend the Chamber Music Concert that Symphony Silicon Valley is presenting on Tuesday, but Rufus is a great bassoonist so why not make it two concerts for the week? Better yet, you could also attend the Symphony Silicon Valley full orchestra concert on either Saturday or Sunday too. Now wouldn’t that be a grand week?

Rufus is a wonderful guy … easy to talk to and always fun to be with. A while back he was featured in an issue—and landed on the front cover!—of International Musician magazine, and I love seeing him get some attention. He deserves it.
