Frank Morelli, bassoon soloist, chamber musician and teacher, studied with Stephen Maxym at the Manhattan and Juilliard Schools of Music and was the first bassoonist awarded a doctorate by the Juilliard School. A member of the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra and the woodwind quintet, Windscape, he has also made nine appearances as a soloist in Carnegie Hall. He serves on the faculties of The Juilliard School, Yale School of Music, Manhattan School of Music, SUNY Stony Brook and was recently named Distinguished Lecturer in Woodwinds at the Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College, CUNY. He performs exclusively on the Leitzinger Bassoon.

I am pleased to announce officially that I have become a representative for Leitzinger bocals and bassoons, in order to make them more available to the bassoon community, especially in the Northeast US.

That is why I now play exclusively on a beautiful Leitzinger Bassoon Model 1. More info
