Sonic Forest, Brenda Schuman-Post

Brenda Schuman-Post

Adventurous, daring, uniquely versatile, oboist Brenda Schuman-Post has traversed a huge range of repertoire and experience and continues to go exploring into the awesome world of the oboe and its music. Brenda plays everything from baroque to modern classical, jazz, blue grass, world fusion, and gorgeous or wild spontaneous improvisations. She has studied the role of the oboe in world musics, which influenced the Oboe of the World album. In 2008, she became the first musician in history to witness the entire process from searching for the commercially threatened African blackwood tree in East Africa, (that’s the tree from which oboe, clarinets, flutes and bagpipes are made) to the making of a top of the line musical instrument in Europe. Being sensitive to nature, and the fact that so many musical instruments are made from trees, Brenda named her multi-instrumental ensemble Sonic Forest and has a CD out by that same name. Brenda is a free lance orchestral and chamber musician and oboe educator in the San Francisco Bay Area.
