…We promise to be back on our ‘Ramble Across Great Britain’ very soon, giving concerts and continuing our fundraising!
Yr Obo Teithio have a lovely brand new Howarth Junior Oboe to find a home for! This instrument is part of our instrument trust and we know there must be a some little oboist who is dreaming of playing such a lovely instrument! We have raised the money to purchase these instruments for less fortunate musicians to borrow as they grow into a much needed oboist!
If anyone can help us find the right home for this instrument, please get in touch with us…surely it shouldn’t be a challenge to find someone to play this lovely instrument!
After having the pleasure of meeting Judith Weir in November,we were more than delighted and grateful to see we were mentioned in her blog! Do take a little read, if you fancy by following the link below!
An extremely over joyed Sophia took her new Howarth Junior Oboe ‘Jennifer Anne’, into school for its first outing today! Sophia is absolutely loving her first few days with the oboe and we are just delighted that we are able to support young musicians in this way!
Now it is time to home the second junior oboe that Yr Obo Teithio own and book some more concert dates!
Yr Obo Teithio, have some very exciting news! We have purchased our first two Howarth Junior oboes and Elen is off to collect them tomorrow, from Howarth of Worthing.We have began the Yr Obo Teithio instrument trust!
Stephen West in Scotland will be homing the first instrument for us over the next few weeks and finding our first promising young oboist!
All the oboes will be named by us and the first is being named ‘Jennifer Anne’. Our project is dedicated to the late Jennifer Anne Caws, a lady who was a true ambassador for the art of playing the oboe.
If you are interested in our instrument trust, please do get in touch!
