    I went to Spoleto USA the first weekend in June. I did hear Peter Kolkay play in the Schubert Octet. He, Eric Ruske, Todd Palmer, and the strings played a great concert.

    I really didn’t hear much oboe at all while I was there. But if I had been there another time I would have heard Firebird and lots of other oboe rep as well.

    The oboists listed in the program book were:
    Emily Brebach, Stanley Chyi, Annie Hennede, Merideth Hite and Catherine Weinfeld.

    The four bassoonists were Aaron Apaza, Renee DeBoer, Matt McDonald and William Short.

    I talked to Matt and Bill as they were playing in an opera that I attended. They told me they both went to Curtis. For some reason, I thought they seemed familiar to me…..then I REMEMBERED THIS YOUTUBE VIDEO. IT WAS THEY WHO ACTED AND PRODUCED IT!!!!


    Merideth Hite went to CCM (Cincinnati Conservatory) and recently studied in Germany with Nicholas Daniel on a Fulbright scholarship. She was an undergrad while I was a grad student. Fantastic oboist! This is a young oboist we are going to hear amazing things about in the near future. Bright girl, great personality, amazing talent!
