Meet our Guest Artist...

Dr. David A. Wells is a multifaceted performer and scholar who teaches bassoon and music history at California State University, Sacramento. On modern bassoon, he freelances with orchestras throughout Northern California, frequently collaborates with colleagues in chamber groups, and plays with the swing quintet Hot Club Faux Gitane. On Baroque bassoon, he performs with Sinfonia Spirituosa, the Sacramento Baroque Soloists, Capella Antiqua, and the American Bach Soloists. As a music scholar, Wells has presented papers at the conferences of the American Musicological Society, the Society for American Music, the Music Library Association, and the International Double Reed Society. He also serves as Co-Executive Director for the Meg Quigley Vivaldi Competition and Bassoon Symposium, a biennial event focused on equity, diversity, and inclusion within the profession. Wells holds degrees in bassoon performance and musicology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and previously studied at Florida State University and Arizona State University. His principal teachers include Jeffrey Lyman, Jeff Keesecker, and Marc Vallon. When not playing or teaching, he can be found swimming, taking photographs, collecting records, and trying to keep up with his super-librarian/yogi wife. For more, see davidawells.com.
