ℹ️ About

The Double Reeds ensemble is an unauditioned group which enables oboists and bassoons to play together. Rehearsals are great fun, learning new repertoire to be performed in our concerts. We play a mix of music from standard classical repertoire such as Handel to arrangements of our favourite films and TV themes. We also enjoy playing arrangements which include the Cor Anglais. We regularly have socials outside of rehearsal times, including our Christmas meal last year which gave us the opportunity to get to know each other better. We hope to see some new players in September!

πŸ‘ͺ The Committee

Ailish Gray

Double Reeds Manager

Hi, I’m Ailish and manager of double reeds. I am a 2nd year Physics student, play the oboe and occasionally attempt the cor anglais. I am really looking forward to the selecting of the biscuits and getting back together with Double Reeds for another awesome year!

Molly Simpson

Double Reeds Conductor

My name is Molly and I'm the Double Reeds Conductor this year. I'm a second year Zoology student and I play the oboe and cor anglais, along with any other woodwind instruments that I can get my hands on, including medieval shawms, crumhorns, bagpipes and a baroque oboe. I'm excited to conduct my own arranged pieces and perform them in LTCs and other concerts.
