Just in: Met principal oboe heads out to Phillymain
We hear that Nathan Hughes, Principal Oboe of the Metropolitan Opera since 2006, has won the audition for the vacancy at the Philadelphia Orchestra. He was the only person from yesterday’s audition in Philadelphia to be offered trial weeks with the orchestra, but the audition is still ongoing.
Either way, he’s going from one Yannick orchestra to another.
No clear indication yet when, or why.
