Description
OBOHIO, The Double Reed Consort, was founded in 1990 by Robert Sorton, professor of oboe at Ohio State University. The basic quartet of oboe, oboe d'amore, English horn, and bassoon performs a wide variety of repertoire from the Renaissance to modern times, from solo pieces to works incorporating additional musicians.

The ensemble has performed throughout the U.S. and Europe. In addition to Sorton, members include P. Bailey Sorton, who serves on the faculties of Mount Vernon Nazarene University and Kenyon College; Karrie Pierson, associate professor of bassoon at the Ohio State University; and Stephanie Kunza, a doctoral student in oboe performance at Ohio State.

Open to the public. Free admission. For more information, please call (616) 331-3844 or visit www.gvsu.edu/music.
