Whenever I'm asked to state a "fun fact" about myself, I tell folks I used to play the bassoon. And I still get giddy whenever a bassoon scores something more orchestrally challenging than bass oompahs. Hence the reason I'm excited for tonight's Summer Music Festival Orchestra Concert at CC's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., artsfestival.coloradocollege.edu/musicfestival), featuring both Rossini's La Gazza Ladra and Stravinsky's Patrouchka — compositions that favor the double reed. A pre-show lecture by music prof Michael Grace starts at 6:15, with a 7:30 performance kick-off. Tickets are $25 for the public. And if you can't make it tonight (or for some reason could care less about my favorite woodwind), the fest offers more than 15 other concerts through June 23. — Kirsten Akens
