Cheryl Wefler, Oboist

Cheryl Denice Wefler, longstanding Principal oboist of the Eugene Opera Orchestra and Oregon Mozart players, and second oboist of the Eugene Symphony Orchestra playing has been described by the Eugene Register Guard as “thrilling” “tender” and“ doleful.”
Cheryl’s Music festival appearances have included Oregon Bach Festival,  the Oregon Festival of American Music, Oregon Coast Festival, Ernst Bloch festival and the Emerald City Opera.
Cheryl has also been a featured soloist numerous times with the Oregon Mozart players performing concerti and featured solo works on oboe, Oboe d’Amore and English Horn. She has had notable performances on the east coast as well including performances as soloist and principal oboe at the New Years Eve Concerts for Peace at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC, the operatic premieres of “The Three Companions” at the G.W. Lynch Theater in NYC, and the premiere of John Musto’s most recent opera, “The Inspector”, at Wolf Trap in Vienna Virginia, with a subsequent recording of that premiere released on Wolf Trap Recordings. As a chamber music soloist she has appeared on  the Madison Lyric Stage Chamber Series in Connecticut and performed the world premiere of Glen Cortese’s “Athena’s Muse” for oboe and piano at the International Double Reed Society in Birmingham, UK.
Currently, Cheryl is seeking funding for an exciting and unique project to commission composer Glen Cortese to write an oboe concerto based on Native American musical themes and stories. This commission has a planned premiere and will result in a meaningful and unique addition to the oboe concerto repertoire.
