And who knew that an oboe was such an appealing instrument, with its clear, warm, penetrating sound. Oboist Robin Tropper delivered the musical magic that this instrument can deliver with his skillful playing, not only in his pre-concert and intermission performances along with guitarist Gary King but also when he accompanied the Ladies Chorus and other performers during certain songs in the concert. These included “All on a Cold Winter’s Night” with the Ladies Chorus and “O Come All Yet Faithful” in a mass performance complete with audience participation.
First of all, congratulations to Robin Tropper, whom I’ve had the delight of meeting at the past two IDRS conventions.
But c’mon now: “…who knew that an oboe was such an appealing instrument”??
I thought everyone knew that.
Found it here.
