I just received this:

John Mack Oboe Camp: Continuing the Legacy at Wildacres

The John Mack Oboe Camp will take place in Little Switzerland, NC from June 6-13, 2008. Nathan Hughes and Scott Bell, both students of the late John Mack, will be teaching this summer. In addition, Thom Moore, oboist and a Grammy award winning recording engineer, will give a masterclass on the specifics and difficulties of recording the oboe. Repairman John Symer will present a basic adjustment masterclass and be available to assist participants with their instruments. The focus of camp is standard etudes, orchestral excerpts and solo literature. Applications and more information are available online at http://dept.kent.edu/oboecamp

Of course we have our own oboe workshop nearby, which John Mack used to hold, but Hidden Valley Music Seminars hasn’t continued with the John Mack name. Elaine Douvas will be there this year, as she was last year.

Small world little tidbit: I played at John Symer’s wedding reception, when he and a former oboe student of mine, Coco Wiedmer, were married.
