The Masterclass on January 19th in New York with Stephen Hammer was a huge success! Lindsay McIntosh, Allen Hamrick, Kendra Hawley, and Ellen Hindson played beautifully and Mr. Hammer gave a fascinating speech on rhetoric in performance and rhetorical gestures in music. At the end, everyone got to try out several baroque oboes, oboes d’amore, and even a brand new oboe da caccia! It was lovely to have so many oboe players from so many backgrounds together, sharing ideas and experiences. We look forward to many more masterclasses like this with wind players from all over the world! Stay tuned for more events!
