Portrait of Carla Wilson

I play principal bassoon with Santa Rosa Symphony and Berkeley Symphony and am a member of several other regional orchestras. I do a lot of freelancing and sub work with San Francisco Symphony.  I also teach privately.

Hidden talent

I’m a certified Kundalini Yoga instructor, a certified NAMI support group leader, and I still remember how to ride a unicycle.

Favorite musical experience

When I subbed with SFS and got to play for the Queen of England.
