oboeperformance.  She is committed to playing a part in the Conservatory’s growth, because she knows it is a rich environment where people of all ages and backgrounds can study music, grow through accomplishment, experience camaraderie, and have a positive impact on the larger community.  As an oboist, she loves most classical music and also enjoys older jazz, folk/rock, bluegrass and some world music.  She advises anyone not familiar with Mari Boine, a singer from northern Norway, to check her out.
