McCray injury forces changes to upcoming performance

On July 22, Glenn Korff School of Music Associate Professor of Bassoon Jeff McCray suffered a devastating injury to his right knee, a ruptured patellar tendon. Doctors say it will be 6-12 months before he is fully recovered. 

“Due to restrictions of keeping my foot up when seated and the dimensions of the brace I’m in pretty much prevent me from being able to play the bassoon in a healthy way, so I’m forced to take some time off,” McCray said.

The most striking is the new maple wooden stage flooring that replaced flooring that is believed to be original to the building built nearly 50 years ago.
