Regina Brady

Oboe

Hometown: White Plains, NY
Alma maters: Oberlin College and Conservatory, B.A. & B.M.: Colburn School Conservatory of Music, M.M.
Appearances: Kent/Blossom Music Festival, 2016–17; Texas Music Festival, 2015; Sarasota Music Festival, 2014
Musical origins: I began playing piano at age 4, and oboe at age 9. I think what most excited me about the oboe was its uniqueness. No one I knew played it, and the sound is unlike any other instrument.
What inspired you to audition for TŌN? I heard about TŌN through friends who applied during the first season. TŌN seemed like the perfect combination of orchestral experience and critical thinking about and hopefully changing some of the challenges that face the modern orchestra.
Favorite piece to play: Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique
Favorite obscure piece: Philip Glass’ Akhnaten
Favorite musical memory: Playing Dvorak’s New World Symphony at Blossom Music Center with The Cleveland Orchestra
Favorite non-classical musician or band: The National
Musical guilty pleasure: Broadway musicals
Best music to have on repeat: Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration
What recording would you take to a deserted island: Schumann’s Symphony No. 2, Cleveland Orchestra with George Szell
Proudest accomplishment: Graduating with a B.A. in Neuroscience
Favorite non-musical hobby or activity: Roller coasters!
Favorite book: Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World
Favorite painting: Anything by Katharina Grosse
Piece of advice for a young classical musician: Get exposure to as much music as possible! Any genre! Especially live!
