Three Reeds Duo
Blue Griffin Records
This duo, formed in 2005, has begun building a repertoire ranging from baroque and classical transcriptions to contemporary concert literature. Three Reeds has performed in a variety of venues throughout the country, from collegiate recitals, to conferences, to wedding ceremonies. In 2011, the Three Reeds Duo was awarded the Donald Derby Professorship at Northwestern State University, where they are both professors on their respective instruments. Through this grant, Three Reeds commissioned four new works for oboe/saxophone duo and premiered these works at the 2012 NASA Conference in Arizona and the World Saxophone Congress in Scotland. In 2015, Three Reeds Duo was the winner of the Alford Professorship at Northwestern State University allowing them to record their debut CD, signals cross. To their knowledge, this is the first CD ever recorded of oboe/saxophone duos.
