Jeanette Zyko, oboe

Thursday, January 12 @ 8 pm



Jeanette Zyko presents a recital of seldom-performed solo and chamber works for oboe and English horn by Ursula Mamlok, Alan Hovhaness, Heinrich von Herzogenberg and Benjamin Britten. The program also features Eric Ruple (piano), Eric Guinivan and Marlon Foster (percussion), Jacyln Wappel (harp), and Ian Zook (horn).

Oboist Jeanette Zyko, praised by Fanfare Magazine and ArtsNash for her “refined playing” and “achingly beautiful lines,” enjoys an active career as a chamber and orchestra musician.

A versatile artist, Zyko has played music ranging from 20th-century composer Louis Andriessen to Baroque composer Jan Zelenka, and her solo and chamber music performances have taken her across the United States and abroad. Equally at home as an orchestra musician, Zyko has performed with the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Opera, Indianapolis Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Gateway Chamber Orchestra and Paducah Symphony. 

Prior to joining the faculty of JMU in 2016, Zyko held positions at Austin Peay State University and the University of Costa Rica. She received her training at Hartt School of Music, Butler University, and Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Humbert Lucarelli, Malcolm Smith and Stephen Taylor.
