Eileen Whalen

By Jeff Huntington

You can’t have a great orchestra without a great oboist, and they’re scarce. Dayton is fortunate to have one of the country’s great oboists, Eileen Whalen (shown). You can hear her 49 times this season with the Dayton Philharmonic, but you have a special opportunity to hear her solo with the Bach Society of Dayton Sunday, October 24 at 4 p.m. when she will play Samuel Barber’s Canzonetta for oboe and strings. The Bach Society concert at Kettering Adventist Church, 3939 Stonebridge Road, will also feature the Vivaldi Gloria. Whalen will give the pre-concert lecture at 3 p.m. Also, mark your calendars for Lisa Grove, the excellent oboist of the Springfield Symphony, who  will solo with the SSO Monday, February 14 in Jean Françaix’s The Flower Clock. In addition, Vladimir Lande, formerly principal oboist of the Leningrad Philharmonic, will appear on the Chamber Music Yellow Springs series Sunday, January 30 as part of the Poulenc Trio.  This is a rare year for oboes—you won’t want to miss these concerts.
