    About the artist:

    Oboist Dr. Lindabeth Binkley joined the Tucson Symphony Orchestra as Principal Oboe in 1998. She has held positions with the Colorado Symphony, Arizona Opera, and Central City Opera. Originally from Michigan, Binkley holds degrees from Central Michigan University, The University of Colorado at Boulder and received her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Arizona in May 2002. Her primary teacher was Roger Rehm, Professor of Oboe at Central Michigan University, with whom she began studying at age eleven until completion of her Bachelor of Music Education degree in 1992. Additional studies have included work with Peter Cooper and Dr. Neil Tatman. Binkley also regards John Mack and John de Lancie as significant influences as she was able to study intermittently with both throughout her degree process. A dedicated teacher, Binkley maintains an active private studio in Tucson and has served on the faculties of the University of Arizona and Northern Arizona University. Most recently, she spent the 2007 summer as Artist in Residence and Oboe Instructor at the Bay View Music Festival in Bay View, Michigan. She is currently the Artistic Director of the St. Andrew’s Bach Society (Tucson, AZ). Critics have described Binkley’s playing as a “classic triumph of lightness, delicacy, and expressiveness”. During the 1999-2000 Tucson Symphony Season, her performance of W. A. Mozart’s Oboe Concerto in C Major, K. 314 was named by the Arizona Daily Star as one of Tucson’s best classical concerts in a retrospective of the year’s classical music events. Highlights of her career also include participation in the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival (1992) and performing as Principal oboe of the National Repertory Orchestra (1996). Binkley has also performed internationally with bassoonist Scott Pool and pianist Eric Stellrecht in recital at the 2000 International Double Reed Society Conference held in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
