My friend Pam brought this young player to my attention. This is his latest video, posted in November of 2020. At the time he was 16. WOW! I’m not exactly a huge Pasculli fan, but he plays it SO well, and I could possibly change my mind after hearing this!

Bravo, Spencer Rubin!

No words necessary. (I can’t sing and play at the same time … not sure how folks do that!)

Dr. Aaron Hill, a fabulous oboist and instructor, has a new series! Check it out. I highly recommend his videos. (If you recall he also did Ferling Fridays!)

Okay, okay, I thought I wasn’t going to post in August, but I did a little thing with a mask I ordered. It isn’t pleasant. It makes me want to cry, honestly. But if I have to use one, at least I own one now.

A friend, Bob Hubbard, shared this with me earlier today. And … just WOW.

Please watch and listen. Titus Underwood is the Principal Oboe of the Nashville Symphony … and he is amazing!

Sometimes the beauty of music just really hits me. This performance did that … I immediately teared up. Bravo Eugene and Eugene. ?
