Rath returned to Lawrence following his tenure at the University of Oklahoma School of Music and 22 years as Principal Bassoon in the Oklahoma City Philharmonic Orchestra. During this time, he established an international reputation as a bassoon performer and teacher. At OU, he performed with the Oklahoma Woodwind Quintet, a very active ensemble that performed in Carnegie Recital Hall, Austria, England, and throughout the U.S. They were the first woodwind quintet to release a compact disc of Christmas Music, which included two arrangements by Rath. He has presented concerts in Argentina, Austria, Canada, China, England, Hungary, Taiwan, and the U.S. Rath performed as Principal Bassoon with the Classical Music Festival for 17 summers and was solo artist three times in several performances of concertos by Mozart and Haydn. His performances have been heard on national and international radio programs and are featured on five CDs: A Christmas Delight , Moosmann Artists Sampler Disc, Moosmann Live , Moosmann 25th Anniversary, and Landscapes: The Double Reed Music of Daniel Baldwin. He studied bassoon with Fred Schroeder, Stanley Scheller, Stephen Basson, and Wil Roberts; composition with James Ming; and Conducting with Joel Rosenberg and Vincent C. LaGuardia. In 1985, he was a Quarter-finalist in the Concert Artists Guild Competition. Rath is in demand as guest speaker on The Beatles and other popular music topics.
