OboeBass! The Vecchione/Erdahl Duo has created their own unique genre of 'chamber music of a different color' for oboe/English horn and double bass. 'Pages of Music with Rolf and Carrie,' they mix music and literature in educational programs for all ages. Minnesota Public Radio's Steve Staruch calls them"pioneers in the classical music business. Forging ahead with a new chamber music combination that has them performing recently commissioned works, putting together their own music series in Lakeville, and giving concerts in out of the way places. Who would have guessed that an Oboe/Bass duo combination would sound so....well, so right!" Carrie Vecchione teaches oboe at the MacPhail Center for Music, Minneapolis, and freelances in the Twin Cities area. She has soloed in the Carnegie Hall, has served as Principal Oboe for the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra and Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, been a member of the Baton Rouge Symphony and Ft. Wayne Philharmonic, and taught at the Univ. Of WI, Eau Claire, St. Olaf College, Ball State Univ., the Sewanee Summer Music Center, and the International Peace Gardens Music Camp. Rolf Erdahl teaches bass at Gustavus Adolphus College. Previously he was Principal Bass of the Winnipeg Symphony and Manitoba Chamber Orchestra, and has been a member of the Honolulu Symphony, Breckenridge Music Festival, Fort Wayne Philharmonic, Bergen Philharmonic, and New World Symphony. He is an authority on the music of Edvard Grieg. William Eddins, piano, is also the Music Director of the Edmonton Symphony. He's in demand around the globe as a conductor and concert pianist. He is also a really good cook and is extremely fond of elephants. Steve Staruch, narrator, is well-known personality and producer at Classical Minnesota Public. He is the M-F afternoon host and storyteller and does the classical request program Friday Favorites. Staruch is an active freelance singer and violist with leading ensembles in the Twin Cities. The music of Margi Griebling-Haigh has been characterized as haunting, charismatic, yearning, wistful, lyrical, colorful, and insoucient! She is concerned with conveying emotions and moods, but firmly believes in the powers of memorable melodies and rhythms and strong formal structure. While her music is sometimes technically challenging and rhythmically tricky, consideration for the comfort and enjoyment of performers and audience members alike is of great importance. Simply put, her music is effective and charming. Margi is also an oboist, married to a bassist, Scott Haigh, First Assistant Principal Bass of the Cleveland Orchestra. Her familiarity of the possibilities of both instruments makes her uniquely qualified as a composer of oboe/bass duos! Humor is also an important hallmark of her style.
