JMU faculty members Jeanette Zyko and Lori Piitz collaborate to present an evening of music for oboe and piano. The program features works by Australian composers Ross Edwards, Caerwen Martin, and Peter Sculthorpe, as well as dance-inspired pieces by Madeleine Dring, Leon Gurvitch, and Christos Hatzis.

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.

Lori Piitz enjoys a performance career that includes solo, four-hand and chamber music. She has performed in numerous festivals and venues, including the Festival of the Sound in Canada, the Schubert Club in Minneapolis, Lincoln Center and Steinway Hall in New York City, and the Schleswig-Holstein Festival in Germany. Ms. Piitz received her doctorate from Indiana University where she studied with Menahem Pressler.
