Met loses principal oboe to Minnesota

The Minnesota Orchestra has named Nathan Hughes as its principal oboe. Hughes is currently principal oboe of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra and a teacher at Juilliard.

He says: ‘Joining the Minnesota Orchestra, an ensemble that has such a long, rich history and at the same time is forward-thinking, is truly an honor and privilege. I have admired the Orchestra since I first heard it as a young boy growing up in the Twin Cities, and I felt so warmly welcomed when I recently performed with the group. The collaborative spirit among these high-caliber musicians has developed into a wonderful atmosphere that encourages creativity, and the organization is very fortunate to be supported by a large community of music lovers. I look forward to coming to Orchestra Hall to make music with these amazing artists!’
