Jennet Ingle loves the oboe. She has built an active career around performing, teaching, making reeds for and writing about it, and believes deeply that everyone else loves it, too. Perhaps they just don’t know it yet.
Ever since her first appearance with the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in high school, she has been addicted to concerto performances. She’ll play a concerto now at the drop of a hat – seriously, just drop a hat and she’ll play. In March 2007, she was honored to perform the world premiere of Doug Lofstrom’s Oboe Concertino, a work commissioned for her by the New Philharmonic Orchestra and the College of DuPage. Another recent favorite was the 2004 Oboe Concerto by Christopher Rouse, which she presented with the South Bend Symphony in 2016.
