Patricia Gunter
Bassoon, Music Appreciation

Patricia Gunter

Ms. Gunter has been the bassoon instructor at Tennessee State University since 2007.  Her musical career began at age five with the piano.  Her best friend's mother was the local minister's wife and neighborhood piano teacher.  The young pianist's career was cut short when the family moved to St. Louis and the piano remained in Oak Ridge.  She discovered the bassoon in high school. It lured her away from the flute, and she went on to receive her Master's Degree in Bassoon from Indiana University.

Ms. Gunter was a member of the Nashville Symphony from 1981-2003. She currently freelances in Indiana, Kentucky and Alabama and regularly performs with the Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Kentucky and the Alabama Symphony.

Ms. Gunter is a member of the Nashville Double Reed Ensemble and the Instigator of "Bassoonery", a local bassoon quintet. She was one of the founder members of Belmont's Faculty Woodwind Quintet and plays with Opus 5, a local woodwind quintet comprised of faculty from Tennessee State University.
