Laura Bennett Cameron
Laura Bennett Cameron’s artistic and research activities in Europe and in the United States have established an international reputation for expressive playing, innovative collaborations, and expansion of the bassoon’s repertoire through her work with French composer Roger Boutry.
Dr. Bennett Cameron teaches Applied Bassoon, Music Theory, and Ear Training at the University of Texas (Arlington), and is the principal bassoonist of the Dallas Winds. In addition to her position as the principal bassoon of the Grammy-nominated Dallas Winds, Dr. Bennett Cameron also appears as a guest performer with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, among others.
Inspired by her work with Boutry, Laura is the founder of La Société for la Promotion de la Musique de Roger Boutry, an American foundation devoted to the promotion and advancement of Boutry’s compositions. She also serves as solo bassoonist in The Boutry Ensemble, a chamber ensemble dedicated to the education and engagement of American audiences with the composer’s body of work. In August 2018, Laura and The Boutry Ensemble will travel to Paris to showcase rarely-performed works by Boutry in his home city.
