Okay … here goes … one thing leads to another …

The winner of the San Francisco Opera principal oboe audition is now playing at the opera, so I can safely tell you, even though I still don’t see his name, that the new oboist is Shea Scruggs. I’m really looking forward to hearing him!

He’s a young one, to be sure. If you go here you’ll read about his senior recital. In 2005. He then served a one-year appointment in Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, prior to their audition. That principal oboe audition was won by Dwight Parry. Parry had been the principal oboist in San Diego Symphony. That position, which was, of course, auditioned, is now held by Christopher Gaudi, which you will see on their nicely updated roster.

Dominoes! As is often the case.
