It’s also the anniversaries of beloved movie classics “Gone with the Wind” (75th) and “Mary Poppins” (50th). Bassoonist Peter Kolkay returns to his hometown and will play two bassoon solos. Kolkay attended Jefferson Junior High School when Naperville Municipal Band Director Ron Keller taught there. Kolkay originally started as an oboe player, but when there were five oboe players in the band, Dr. Keller asked his young student if he would consider changing to bassoon and he blossomed with the new instrument. Kolkay became part of a woodwind quintet that was formed in sixth grade and stayed together through all four years at Naperville North High School. - Today, Kolkay is called “stunningly virtuosic” by The New York Times and “superb” by The Washington Post. He claimed first prize at the Concert Artists Guild International Competition in 2002 and was awarded an Avery Fisher Career Grant in 2004. He is an Artist of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and a member of the IRIS Orchestra in Germantown, Tenn. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Lawrence University in Appleton, Wis., a master’s degree from the Eastman School of Music and a doctorate from Yale University.
