This is the oboe site of Patricia Emerson Mitchell.
Okay … that’s my name for programs. Everyone else calls me Patty (or mom, or “hey you”, and one person even called me “dude”).
I began blogging in January of 2003. (You can read my old blog pages compiled here if you want to waste a lot of time!)
I am the principal oboist of Opera San Jose, second oboist for Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley, second oboist (acting principal for 2003-2004) and English hornist of Symphony Silicon Valley. I also freelance in the Bay Area, and teach at University of California, Santa Cruz and privately at my home.
