Colin Maier: Oboe Acrobat

Colin Maier

Colin Maier 

Kara Dahl Russell obviously had a lot of fun interviewing Colin Maier (pronounced MYer).   He has very interesting things to say about music education, creativity and serendipity.  His "path" as an oboe-accrobat has been so unique, and charmed, and his resolve to take the stuffiness out of classical music so good-hearted, that he is a joyous new note in classical music.
