This marks the one hundred and FIRST issue of the Reed Report! Thank you all for being readers along the way. From the early days way back in NYC, to Scottsdale AZ, then to Chicago and finally Arizona (again)… thank you for placing your trust in us and giving us a moment of your attention for fun oboe talk!
We have some really neat things lined up for you today, so let’s get started!
First, take a look at our Oboe Talk interview with Patty Mitchell, principal oboist in in Opera San Jose, second oboe of Symphony Silicon Valley, and the owner of the oboe blog oboeinsight.
Here’s the link to the interview.
If you know of an oboist who we should interview, please contact us.
They can be famous, not famous or somewhere in between. The purpose of these interviews is to shine a spotlight on oboists who are doing great things and to use those stories to help encourage and motivate the next generation of oboe players.
Next… we just got done setting up a new marketplace where people can post oboe related stuff for sale. The listings are free so PLEASE spread the word. If you have an oboe to sell, you can post it there. If you’re selling oboe tools, they belong there as well. It’s kind of like classifieds for the oboe world.

Please use it if you have something to sell and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
