Butler graduate student Kelly Swensson is one of the country’s finest young bassoonists. Swensson, 24, will be performing a solo in Butler Symphony Orchestra’s performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony on Feb. 24. Butler bassoon professor Douglas Spaniol remembers the first time he met Swensson. Swensson was a sixth grader who had recently picked up bassoon.
