Priscilla Herreid

Priscilla Herreid plays recorders, period oboes, and a multitude of renaissance wind instruments with some of the finest ensembles in the US and abroad. She is principal oboist of Boston Baroque, Tempesta di Mare, The Sebastians, and New York Baroque Inc., and can be seen playing renaissance winds with Piffaro, providing live accompaniment to silent films with Hesperus, and singing the Latin mass in New York City. She performs regularly with The Handel + Haydn Society and Trinity Baroque Orchestra, and has appeared with The Gabrieli Consort, Tenet, The City Musick, Philharmonia Baroque, the Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Venice Baroque, Portland Baroque, and American Bach Soloists. 

Priscilla frequently coaches renaissance and baroque ensembles at Yale University and The Juilliard School, and has taught renaissance winds and recorder at the Madison and Amherst Early Music Festivals and baroque oboe at the Oberlin Baroque Performance Institute. 

Priscilla’s playing has been called “downright amazing” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, and the New York Times has praised her “soaring recorder, gorgeously played…” She is a graduate of Temple University and The Juilliard School. 

POSTPONED: April Fundraiser
