George Bush, Hayden Fry,
the Gatlin Brothers,
and Lynn Gaubatz?

FALLS CHURCH, VA -- What do George Bush, Hayden Fry, the Gatlin Brothers, and Lynn Gaubatz have in common? As of February 3, they will all have been honored as Distinguished Former Odessans. Bassoonist Lynn Gaubatz will accept this distinction in recognition of her achievements as a soloist, chamber musician, and teacher in Odessa, Texas on February 3, 1994 at the annual meeting of the Heritage of Odessa Foundation.

Named One of America's Ten Most Outstanding Young Working Women by GLAMOUR Magazine, Miss Gaubatz has been hailed by American and European critics as "brilliant", "charming", and "delightful". Ms. Gaubatz has performed as soloist on four continents and served for two years as the Bassoon Professor at the prestigious Mozarteum Conservatory in Salzburg, Austria. In addition to being the only bassoonist ever to perform a solo recital in the Concert Hall of the Kennedy Center, she has been featured as soloist there five times.

The Distinguished Former Odessan distinction was created by the Heritage of Odessa Foundation to recognize individuals who once lived in Odessa but who have moved on to notable accomplishments in various fields of endeavor.

In addition to a series of performances at the Children's Hospital in Washington, DC, upcoming concerts by Ms. Gaubatz include opening an honorary concert for the music of composer Alec Wilder in New York City (2/19) and a solo recital at the Mexican Cultural Institute in March in Washington, DC.
