Claire Chenette is a versatile solo, chamber, and orchestral musician particularly devoted to the performance of contemporary music on the oboe. A native of the Midwest, Chenette is quickly gaining recognition in Southern California, performing in sold-out concerts with various projects, festivals, and ensembles such as the REDCAT Xenakis Festival, the American Youth Symphony, and the Center Stage Opera. This past season has seen her performing as principal oboist with the American Youth Symphony at Walt Disney Concert Hall; recording with her band Three Thirds at Capitol Records; as well as performing with the San Diego Symphony, the Long Beach Symphony, Opera Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, wildUp!, and Orchestra Nova. She also premiered commissions with her chamber ensemble, The Joshua Trio, and traveled around the world: working under Pierre Boulez for a third summer in residence at the Lucerne Music Festival; performing at Salle Pleyel in Paris, with the Spoleto USA Festival Orchestra; and as principal oboist with the Debut Orchestra on tour in China. She received a BM in Oboe Performance and a BA in Religious Studies from Oberlin College and Conservatory of Music and an MFA in Oboe Performance from CalArts.
