About Karen

Market Rasen
Experienced oboe player able to offer 3 types of instrument for any service or celebration.

I trained at the Royal College of Music studying Oboe, Piano and Singing. I have many years' experience in performing at weddings, funerals, church services and concerts on oboe, oboe d'amore and cor anglais. Accompanied on piano or keyboard by my husband David, we can tailor the music required to suit the function and love to be involved in the arranging and organisation. I am also available as an organist or pianist for weddings, funerals or services.
