Welcome to the Oboe Studio of Erin Webber!
I am a free-lance oboist, reed maker and teacher in the San Antonio area. I live here with my husband, three cats, a bunny, a bearded dragon and a betta fish.
A bit about me…
Currently, I am principal oboist with Symphony Viva, South Texas Symphonic Orchestra, San Antonio Sinfonietta and the San Antonio Symphonic Band. I have also performed extensively in the area with groups such as the Symphony of the Hills, Laredo Philharmonic, Victoria Symphony Orchestra, and the UIW Orchestra. I have also played with several theaters in town, such as the Woodlawn and Playhouse San Antonio.
I hold a Master of Music Performance degree from Arizona State University, where I studied oboe with Professor Martin Schuring. After graduation, I continued studying oboe adjustment and reed making with David Weber of Weber Reeds, Inc. While living in Arizona, I held the position of principal oboe with the Scottsdale Philharmonic Orchestra and co-principal with Arizona Pro Arte Ensemble; played with numerous other groups such as the Tempe Symphony and the Scottsdale Arts Orchestra; gave several professional recitals; and built a thriving studio of oboe and piano students.
I hold a Bachelor of Music Performance degree from Western Kentucky University, where I studied oboe and English horn with Dr. Michele Fiala. During my time at Western, I appeared as a soloist with the WKU Wind Ensemble and with the Bowling Green Western Symphony Orchestra. I also studied composition with Dr. Michael Kallstrom, and composed two chamber works which are available through TrevCo-Varner Music: “The Journey” and “Overheard on a Saltmarsh.”
