Oboe

Oboe Masterclass

Wells oboists enjoyed an inspiring masterclass with contemporary music specialist, oboist and composer, Melinda Maxwell in November. With an increased interest and focus by Wells oboists on improvisation, Melinda was able to offer excellent advice on this and on the practicalities of working with artists in other disciplines. The accompanying image shows Melinda rehearsing the ‘Royal Fireworks Music’ by Fasch, which will be performed in the School’s Woodwind Promenade Concert in January. This will be an ambitious performance featuring, nine oboes, four bassoons, nine trumpets and three sets of timpani!
