South Bend Symphony principal oboist in second community-series concert

Posted on: November 16, 2017

“Jennet Ingle fell in love with the sound of the oboe before she even knew what it looked like,” in first grade, writes Becky Malewitz in Sunday’s (11/12) South Bend Tribune (Indiana). “Now the principal oboist for the South Bend Symphony Orchestra and an oboe instructor, Ingle says, … ‘I firmly believe that everyone loves the oboe, maybe they don’t just quite know it yet.’ ” Ingle will perform in a Thursday concert entitled “Made For You And Me: American Works for Oboe and Piano” at LangLab, “the second of three concerts in the Ultreia Stage Performance series, which aims to ‘forge stronger partnerships with other cultural organizations in the community,’ with each performance presented in a different community venue…. Ingle’s program [with pianist Siwon Kim] features five pieces by American composers,” William Grant Still, Alyssa Morris, George Gershwin, Susan Kander, and Eric Ewazen. “Ingle likes the idea of bringing classical music to non-traditional spaces such as LangLab … and [the jazz club] Merrimans. ‘I love feeling like a jazz doll even though I am in fact an oboist playing 21st century classical works.’ ”
