“There’s No Place Like Home” presents Sarah Teuscher, and oboist who has lived in the Charleston area for 6 years. In that time she has developed and maintained a productive performance and teaching schedule. She has been a member of the Summerville Community Orchestra since the 2007-08 season as Principal Oboe performing great works such as Peter & The Wolf, Scheherazade and Pictures at an Exhibition with the orchestra. Ms. Teuscher also regularly substitutes with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra in the Oboe III/English Horn position on an as needed basis. Most recently, you may have seen Ms. Teuscher playing around the Summerville area this summer as a founding member of Presa, a wind chamber group with other members of the SCO.
Ms. Teuscher holds a Masters degree in Oboe Performance from Louisiana State University where she studied with Mr. James Ryon, and a Bachelors degree in Music from James Madison University where she studied with Dr. Michele Kirkdorffer. Ms. Teuscher has also received coaching in masterclasses from Sarah Bloom, Alan Vogel, Bo Newsome and Mark Ostoich.
Performing the Vaughan Williams Oboe Concerto with the SCO will be Ms. Teuscher's first solo concerto with an orchestra, and she could not be more excited to present this lovely piece to you.
