Judith Farmer performs at Meg Quigley Vivaldi Competition and Bassoon Symposium
Judith Farmer, USC Thornton faculty member in bassoon, performed with alumnus Nick Gerpe (DMA ‘12) at the 2019 Meg Quigley Vivaldi Competition and Bassoon Symposium (MQVC), held at the Colburn School from January 11-13. MQVC is a three-day event that includes master classes, presentations, performances, and a competition for female bassoonists. Farmer, a 2016 GRAMMY nominee, performed bassoon in a two-piece performance, with Gerpe on piano, in a program consisting of works by Thornton alumnus Gernot Wolfgang (GCRT ’94). In addition to performing, Farmer also served as a judge for the semi-final round of the competition.
