Bassoonist Sébastien Malette

Sébastien Malette is a versatile bassoonist whose young career has already taken him in many different directions. His passion for solo bassoon repertoire and Canadian contemporary classical music led him to record his debut solo album “Anerca”, a compilation of three Canadian bassoon works, released in September 2020. He was then awarded an OAC grant to commission and record a new suite of bassoon pieces: “A Village of Landscapes” by Frank Horvat, released in May 2023. He currently holds the bassoon position with the Central Band of the Canadian Armed Forces, and before this, he performed regularly on bassoon and contrabassoon with the Niagara Symphony, the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony, and the National Academy Orchestra.
