Stefanie Przybylska

Principal Bassoon

Principal bassoonist with the New Mexico Philharmonic, the New Mexico Symphony, and the Santa Fe Symphony orchestras, Stefanie Przybylska has appeared as a featured soloist in works by Mozart and John Williams. Ms. Przybylska has performed with the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Music in the Mountains (in Durango, Colorado) and with Chatter Sunday in Albuquerque. She co-founded and directed the Bosque Bassoon Band, a group composed of both amateur and professional bassoonists, dedicated to performing chamber music written for bassoon ensemble both at concert venues and at informal settings such as schools, hospitals, and grower’s markets. The group has commissioned original works and performed at two International Double Reed Society conferences.

Before moving to Albuquerque, Stefanie freelanced in Chicago where she played with the Chicago Symphony for more than a decade in the U.S. and abroad. She also served as principal bassoonist for the Chicago Sinfonietta, the Lake Forest Symphony, and the Illinois Philharmonic, performing as an extra musician for other ensembles including the Grant Park Symphony Orchestra.

As an undergraduate student at The Juilliard School, she was selected by national audition to participate at the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont, under whose auspices she performed, toured, and recorded. She later went on to earn her Master’s degree from Northwestern University and her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.  While not working, Stefanie spends time walking her dogs, Wolfy, Moose and Birdie, and preparing the music of her late husband, Daniel Paul Davis, for publication.
