Oberlin sponsors approximately 500 concerts on campus each year, including recitals and concerts by the more than 25 student ensembles, including the Baroque Performance Ensemble. From jazz to contemporary guitar, classical to popular, computer-generated to acoustic, and from time-tested compositions to newer works, the college and conservatory present performances to satisfy any musical interest.Performance Ensembles
Baroque Flute Faculty
Conservatory faculty maintain active performance schedules while remaining accessible and committed to their students. Individual instruction is paramount to helping students develop their mechanical, technical, stylistic, psychological, and musical skills.
My personal strongest area of interest is French flutes, which I find to be wonderful musical instruments—although, virtually all flutes are interesting to me and many are superb instruments.
