Just a heads up for those looking to come to Wellington for the oboe summer school, and who are interested in attending as an "advanced participant", please contact us and complete the booking form before sending us any funds for the course. The course is almost full and we don't want to have to refund money if possible, especially for international transfers. There are places still for "enthusiast", the "high school programme" and "professional development".


I am pleased to announce that Philippe Rigoutat will be making his first ever visit to New Zealand to display his oboes and cor anglais at the oboe summer school. It is excellent news for those already playing Rigoutat instruments in this part of the world, as Philippe will be able to check over your instrument and perform some service as required. Also, for those people interested in buying a new oboe, it will be a great chance to try and compare several oboes at once. A rare opportunity in this part of the world.

Also, Kexun Ge of KGE Reeds is planning to attend and bring KGE machines and oboes. This is great opportunity for those interested in buying a machine to try reeds made from his 4 different euro templates and 4 x US style templates and choose and buy a machine set up to your personal liking. Also, Kexun will be able to service machines from existing customers while he is at the course.
