From the Band Room to Broadway
Hailed by the New York Times for her "magnificently sweet tone," Broadway oboist, Keve Wilson, shares a 45-minute autobiographical whirlwind of her life in music. Students get to see firsthand the dedication it takes to have a career as professional musician. With innovative programming and virtuosic playing, Keve combines memories of her high school practice room with stories of life in a Broadway orchestra pit, in a Hollywood recording studio, and on the road touring the world.
"They get to see a real personalized story of how a musician goes from being a high school oboist to going through college and then afterward and how you get a job in a Broadway show. I knew from a very young age that I wanted to move to New York City and be a musician. And I would have loved to see a person telling me their path, how they got there, their struggles."
- Keve Wilson, Broadway Oboist, Producer and Star of From the Band Room to Broadway
