Of first adult oboe workshop. We had a wonderful group of enthusiastic adult oboists of all different standards but wonderfully supportive of each other.  The morning was warm ups and a wonderful breathing workshop from Philip. Then the fantastic reed workshop with Iona followed by the virtual concert. The afternoon was a performance workshop, everyone had chance to play some of their piece and advice offered to help them develop. Congratulations to everyone!
