Welcome Home

The solo oboe is the first sound we hear, just as we would in “normal” times, when it sounds the tuning note before a concert. From there, a variety of styles, textures, and tone colors makes for a satisfying aesthetic experience, even with only a half-dozen (at most!) musicians onstage.   Single tickets will not … Continued
