Lynn Gaubatz Named
"Outstanding Young Working Woman"

NEW YORK -- Lynn Gaubatz, of Falls Church, VA, considered to be one of the world's greatest concert bassoonists and currently the guest principal bassoonist in Barry Tuckwell's Maryland Symphony Orchestra, has been named one of GLAMOUR's Outstanding Young Working Women for 1988. She is one of ten winners featured in the current (February) issue of GLAMOUR.

By age 26 Gaubatz had performed as virtuoso soloist on four continents - Europe, North and South America, and Africa - and had been awarded the Leonard Bernstein Fellowship to Tanglewood, the Henry Cabot Award for Musicianship given by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the Lara B. Hoggard Award for Young Artists.

Gaubatz has been principal bassoonist in orchestras conducted by Leonard Bernstein, Sir Georg Solti, and Seiji Ozawa, among others, in Austria, Germany, Spain, Venezuela, and the U.S. During her tours of Spain and Africa as soloist, she was featured on Radio Nacional de España, and her critically-acclaimed performances of Mozart's Bassoon Concerto have been broadcast on three continents by PBS, Radio Nacional de España, and Radio Nacional de Venezuela.

In addition to her work as concerto soloist and chamber musician, she has given three recitals devoted entirely to works for unaccompanied bassoon at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC. Gaubatz received her B.M. in music from Boston University in 1978 and an M.M. in music from Northwestern University in 1980. She was the Bassoon Professor from 1982 to 1984 at the prestigious Mozarteum Conservatory in Salzburg, Austria and is currently on the faculty of the Washington Conservatory of Music.
