Hey Everyone! I'm 17 years old and I live in the US. I play oboe, piano,and percussion, but my instrument of choice is the voice (I'm a baritone). I love classical music- mostly 20th/21st century stuff, although my all time favorite work is Mahler's Eight Symphony. I prefer choral music, but there are several purely instrumental that I love (Barber's essays for orchestra, Short Ride in a Fast Machine, etc.). I've dabbled in composition and would like to be a high school choir director one day. So that's a little bit about myself.

And welcome to MIMF.

Sounds instereting with your wishes to become a high-school choir director... is there some specific reason for just that?

Oboe is one of my favorite instruments. Not that i play it or anything but when i compose i definetly try to look for an opportunity to use Oboes. (There is a nice song from the soundtrack of The Mission called "Gabriels Oboe", very nice tune it is.

"here is a nice song from the soundtrack of The Mission called "Gabriels Oboe"- Bingo! glad to have come across someone who likes that piece as well - Ennio Morricone is the composer and for those who thought his repertoire was restricted to Spaghetti western latin kind of stuff, score like "The Mission", "Untouchables" should come as stunners!

irir123: I saw the song Gabriels Oboe being performed live once. It wasn't performed by the original composer or anything but by Swedish Radios Symphonic Orchestra.
It was a kind of a movie-night where they played songs from different movies. Gabriels Oboe was fantastically performed and me and my friend had really good seats to hear and see it all.

They also played the song from "Mio min Mio" Anders Eljas and Benny Andersson. (Anders Eljas was the director during this concert)

Frederik Sjölund - the movie THE Mission itself is an alltime classic directed by Roland Jaffe
