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 eachother, we’ve been practicing together and working up a repertoire. Just as Summer was winding down this year, we put on a successful lunchtime concert outside in the courtyard of the main campus. Here are some sample MP3’s from the concert:

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