KAREN BIRCH BLUNDELL
OBOE and ENGLISH HORN
Hello and Welcome,
Thank you for visiting my website. I've been having a great concert season playing with a variety of groups and am looking forward to the 2017 season at Eastern Music Festival. Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for this site. I'm continuing to update my resource page and would be happy to add any vendors you might know. I hope it's a help if you're looking for oboes, reeds and other supplies. As always, please contact me if you have questions or comments you'd like to share.
Best wishes- Karen
Review from the C4 Performance of Lisa Biewala's Lamentations for a City:
"The English horn alternated in function as announcer and mirror. Karen Birch Blundell’s extended solo in the middle of the piece was breathtaking: she made her English horn an instrument of remarkable expressivity, subtle nuance and elegant virtuosity, at once frankly displayed and humbly owned."
