I am a classically trained oboist who has studied with Joe Robinson, Emily Pailthorpe, and Richard Dallessio. My undergraduate degree is from Bryn Mawr College (2006-2010), where I studied philosophy and music. Simultaneously, I completed a program for young performers at the Juilliard School in New York City.
I am a regular player in the St Endellion Music Festival in Cornwall, UK, where I have performed in operas starring Sir John Tomlinson and Philip Langridge and an Evensong for BBC Radio 3. Other highlights include performing on NPR (WHYY’s “Creative Campus” program) and winning the concerto competition at my college as a sophomore, playing Francaix’s “L’horloge de flore”.
I also play with the New Philharmonic Orchestra in Newton, MA. One particular highlight is having had a chance to play as a member of the Indigo Girls’ orchestra when they performed with the NPO in Boston.
For some of my recorded playing, see the University of North Carolina Symphony Orchestra’s award-winning performance of Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic Dances (woodwind soli begins at 3:35) and our performance of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake Suite (oboe solo begins at 1:07).
