Artist Spotlight: Kevin Harris

By Unsettled Scores / On / In Artist Spotlight, Blog post, Chamber, Music

Leading up to our show at Celebration of Nations on September 7 we will be featuring each of our artists! Today’s first spotlight is our bassoonist, Kevin Harris.

Kevin Harris is an active freelance orchestral bassoonist, performing with the Niagara Symphony, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, the Windsor Symphony, Against the Grain Theatre, and the Toronto Concert Orchestra. He also enjoys belonging to several chamber ensembles: his woodwind quintets Blythwood Winds and Quintagious!, and the electric pop bassoon quartet DFM. Always interested in discovering and creating repertoire for these groups, Kevin is an avid arranger, crafting everything from Mozart arias for woodwind quintet to ‘80s pop standards for four amplified bassoons.

Kevin’s quintet “Quintagious!” is playing a show on September 12th, 7:30pm at Heliconian Hall.

Kevin will be appearing in RADAR and Contraries: a chamber requiem as part of a presentation of Unsettled Scores at Celebration of Nations on September 7 starting at 7:30PM at FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.

Tickets are $5 for high school students, $20 for adults, and can be booked by visiting the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre website
