MUSIC / Chamber Music on Tap
6 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, BridgePort Brew Pub
The Bassoon Brothers are out to prove that the staid reputation of the bassoon and its practitioners is just plain wrong. The sight gags, humorous asides and audience participation in their typically sold-out shows tends to do the trick. The laid-back atmosphere of the Oregon Symphony's beer-lubricated listener series, 'Chamber Music on Tap' also should help set the tone.
