Brenda Schuman-Post

Professional Oboist & Instructor, San Francisco

Influencing a wider view of the technical and expressive capabilities of the oboe and oboist, BRENDA SCHUMAN-POST has performed in almost every conceivable venue for almost every type of audience. ‘Jazz Now’ magazine calls her an “oboe advocate” and her Oboe Of The World CD is acclaimed as “groundbreaking!” She has built a career on versatility, making the oboe and its music accessible. Brenda presents entertaining, educational master classes and lecture-performances and has taught in Europe, Indonesia, Central America and throughout the United States. Mpingo’s Fruit offers insight into the African people, places, process, and politics involved in the harvesting of African Blackwood (grenadilla), the wood from which oboes, clarinets, flutes, and other instruments are made. Oboes Of The World is about ethnic oboes, world musics, and what the sound of the oboe means to humanity. A skilled improviser, she also offers workshops in Extended Techniques and Free Improvisation. In 2003, Brenda won the Star Trek Idol Talent Search by composing and performing « Fantasy On Themes From Star Trek » for solo oboe. She has since been a celebrity performer, mingling with the ‘stars’ at Star Trek and Science Fiction conventions. A prominent freelance orchestral, chamber, studio recording artist and private teacher in the San Francisco Bay Area, Brenda has also played over 300 recitals with her offbeat oboe/piano/accordion duo Classical Trash. She is also concertising and recording with The Solar Systers, performing pre-warp classics to interplanetary fusion. Brenda is a Buffet Crampon USA Performing Artist.
