Today is our "Duoversary," marking our first performance of a piece written for us on this date in 1999 for the National Association of College Wind & Percussion Instructors (NACWPI) in Muncie, IN. To celebrate like it's 1999, here's the piece that started us on this career journey - Tim Goplerud's tango-rondo "It Takes Two . . ."

We're thrilled to announce our latest OboeBass! "commission mission" news - Mary Ellen Childs was one of this year's winners of Harvard's prestigious Fromm Foundation Commission to write a piece for us!

We've long loved Mary Ellen and her distinctive and original musical voice and have been looking for a way to make a collaboration work for a major new oboe/bass piece from her fertile imagination.

This new piece has the working title, "There is a Humming." It will address issues of climate change inspired by sounds, sights, impressions, and maybe scents from her recent sound research trip to Svalbard.

This piece was made possible by a grant from the Fromm Music Foundation. Can hardly wait to hear it!

We had a tantalizing sample of her music written for us as one of the six composer who wrote movements for "The Many Faces of Cy DeCosse" that we performed at the Mpls College of Art and Design (MCAD) July 26, 2019. (Our FB cover photo is from that event, with Cy and Paula Decosse, sponsors Bill and Penny George, and composers,) We'll post a comments link to a little sample of Mary Ellen's piece "Night Blooming" that accompanied Cy's beautiful photos of the night-blooming King and Queen of the Night flowers. The MCAD performance was also accompanied by the scent of the flowers diffused into the gallery.
