The Google Bassoon Quartet!

One of the neat things about working in a big company is the varied interests you’ll find amongst the people who work there. But where else but at Google could I find not one, but THREE  excellent bassoon players? After discovering each other, we’ve been playing together and working up a repertoire. We’ve performed a few times that we can share publically:

  • Just as Summer was winding down this year, we put on our own lunchtime concert in the courtyard of the main campus.  Here are some recordings from that concert:
      1. GBQ_washington_post - Washington Post March - Google Bassoon Quartet
      2. GBQ_bach_air - Bach Air - Google Bassoon Quartet

And a link to a video of our final number: Stars and Stripes Forever!

  • We also performed Alexandre Silvario’s arrangement of My Favorite Things at a “Salon” in the Googleplex lobby. Video link

The Google Bassoon Quartet includes:  Ariel Backenroth, Kendrick Boyd, Yuning Chai, Sanna Wager, and Jonathan Westerling.
