Dwight Perry


Dwight Parry has been the principal oboist of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra since his appointment in 2007. Previously, he held the same position with the San Diego Symphony and was a Fellow with the New World Symphony. He has performed as guest principal oboist with groups including the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the Los Angeles Opera, and the Deutsche Symphonie of Berlin. Originally from coastal Southern California, he found his passion for music studying piano, voice, and jazz saxophone. It was not until late in high school, however, that he began playing the oboe, taking lessons from Joel Timm, and truly found his calling. He received his Master's Degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music with John Mack and his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Southern California with Allan Vogel and David Weiss, a gentleman who also taught him to surf.

Mr. Parry performs and teaches internationally in concertos, recitals, masterclasses, and chamber music. Past appearances have featured the works of Mozart, Goossens, Haydn, Bach, Strauss, Vivaldi, Albinoni, Barber, and Marcello. This season alone, he performed Francaix's Flower Clock, Mozart's Oboe Concerto, and Strauss' Oboe Concerto three times. His performances of Strauss' Oboe Concerto in February 2017 were his third subscription solo appearance with the Cincinnati Symphony. 

Mr. Parry is an Adjunct Faculty member at both the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and at Northern Kentucky University. He also teaches privately and gives masterclasses at schools and festivals throughout the year.

When not performing, you'll often find Mr. Parry in the audience for concerts and shows, including broadway, jazz, and bluegrass as well as opera and symphony performances. He spends the rest of his time hiking, running, volunteering, tossing frisbees, reading and creating curiosities in the kitchen.

Per Hannevold, an AMFS alumnus, has been principal bassoon of the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra since 1979.
