Delphi Goes Bassooning - A Tiny Musical - Morning Melodies February 2023


Delphi Goes Bassooning

A gawky schoolgirl gets given a lumbering bassoon by her mother, a professional musician. The bassoon opens doors – to the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, to a private school – but Janet hates it. After three long years of playing she fails an exam and abandons the bassoon to the depths of her mother’s garage. 32 years later she rediscovers the bassoon and now she is ready for it. She is ready to re-examine her own family history, to re-discover her talented but frustrated musical grandmother, to accept and embrace her own creative spark.

Enter Delphi - the accomplished musician and cabaret star - and her bassoon.
So begins a story that explores mother and daughters, a woman’s struggle for a creative life, expectations, disappointments and the relentless wheel of generational patterns.  It features eight original songs, four characters and one bassoon. 

Duration - 75 minutes, no interval.
