MERIDIAN — Jon Wenberg, Bassoon Principal

    A resident of Mississippi since 1993, Jon Wenberg has served as Principal Bassoonist for both the Meridian Symphony Orchestra and the Mississippi Symphony. He also performs with the Mississippi Symphony’s Woodwind Quintet, and with many other ensembles around the state.  

    Originally, from rural Wisconsin, Wenberg studied at Northwestern University, where he earned both bachelor and master degrees in bassoon performance. He continued his studies at the Cincinnati University College—Conservatory of Music, spending another year as an artist diploma participant.

    Wenberg has spent five summers with the Aspen Music Festival. His background further includes study and performance with the most admired bassoonists in the country — members of the Chicago, New York, Pittsburg, Cincinnati and San Francisco Orchestras.

    Spare time finds Wenberg woodcarving, cooking strange meals, and playing the piano.
