Instructor of Oboe
Washington State native Brent Hages, received his formal training at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and Temple University studying with James B. Caldwell, Alfred Genovese and Louis Rosenblatt. Freelancing and private teaching have taken him to Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Tennessee, New York, New Jersey and currently Seattle. He performs with the Bellevue Philharmonic and the Bellevue Philharmonic Woodwind Quintet, Yakima Symphony, Wenatchee Symphony, Bellevue Chamber Chorus and the Shoreline Community College theatre productions. From 1997 to 2001 he was the Principal Oboist and Administration Director of the Las Vegas Music Festival under the Musical Directorship of another Washington State native and former oboist, Evan Christ. Aside from performing and teaching, he spends his time with his Whippet dogs, collecting vintage recordings, and has collected and restored the instruments of his former teachers that were used throughout their careers.
