Ep 16 – Steve Vacchi and His Weird Instruments

For this episode, Steve Vacchi takes us on a tour of his weird collection of instruments – from the contra-alto clarinet to something called the “hecklephone.” Not only does Steve like to collect some of these strange horns, he also happens to sound incredible on them! Steve Vacchi is professor of bassoon at the University of Oregon and principal bassoon with Orchestra Next.

Orchestra Next wants to thank all of our musicians for hanging in there during this trying time. And we also wish to thank our supporters who have made this project possible. If you’d like to help support this project, please visit orchestranext.com.
