George Mason University (Fairfax, VA) is hosting an FREE Oboe Day on Saturday, March 31, from 10 am-3 pm, concluding with an awesome Senior Oboe Performance Recital given by one of my colleagues at 4.
“Fixing Up Store-Bought Reeds” by Professor Lorrie Berkshire Brown, very useful for where we’re short on time;
“Woodwind Doubling and Improvisation” by international recording artist Charlie Pillow, where we invite you to dabble in some jazz oboe; and even
“The Oboe as a Global Endeavor,” hosted by T.W. Howarth of London manager, Michael Britton.
Be sure to also stop by our “World of Oboe Petting Zoo,” to try out oboes, oboe d’amores, and English horns. We also have several double reed technicians on hand, for all your repairing needs.
