A much welcomed and heralded addition, Taylor's presence on oboe brings our double reed section to full strength - a status not fully realized for more than three years. Her presence rounds out the section to three oboes (one doubling on English horn) and two bassoons. With the addition of Taylor, the concert band can now support two separate woodwind quintets for recitals and protocol missions.
