Episode 12 - Frank Miley, Oboe & English Horn.
Ever wonder what its like to play in the Charleston Symphony? Or, how to make life-long friends in the music business? Just ask Frank Miley! Today, we dive into Frank's story, and hear about his journey from playing clarinet, learning the oboe, joining the Charleston Symphony, and then going into education. After Frank retired from the Berkeley County School District, we were lucky to add him into our group, and we have all been better for it. Even better for us? Frank discovered the English Horn a few years ago, and has fallen in love with it.
Today, Frank delights us with three selections for English Horn at the end of the podcast. First, mvt. 1 of "Sequences" by Liz Sharma. Secondly, Frank's favorite piece of the 3 - Clare Grundmann's "Evening Song." Finally, Frank plays two movements of Fantasia No. 2 for Flute (arr. for English Horn) by G.P. Telemann.
