Carrie Vecchione

Carrie Vecchione, oboe, performs in the Twin Cities and around the country in orchestras, as a chamber musician, and as a soloist.  She is one half of the OboeBass! duo, which concertizes around the country and presents many music education programs in schools and senior residences. OboeBass! has been awarded many grants for commissions, tours and education programs. She has performed as a sub with the Minnesota Orchestra and has been a member of the Baton Rouge Symphony, the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra, the Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra, and Baton Rouge Opera.

As the oboe instructor at MacPhail she steers her students towards opportunities and experiences which will complement their musical goals. Her own goal is to make the study of oboe and music relevant in the lives of each of her students, from the ones who want to spend their lives professionally playing oboe, to those who just want to play as a hobby.  Teaching for more than 30 years, Carrie enjoys working with students of all ages.  She has guided many of her high school and college performers to respected colleges and conservatories, many receiving scholarships. She is the oboe professor at UW River Falls, and has taught at UW Eau Claire, and Ball State University.
