About Dwight

Dwight Parry has been Principal Oboe of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra since his appointment in 2007 and teaches at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. He was formerly Principal Oboe of the San Diego Symphony and was a Fellow with the New World Symphony.

He has performed as guest principal oboist with the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony, the San Francisco Symphony, the Atlanta Symphony, the Los Angeles Opera, and the Deutsche Symphonie of Berlin.

He received his master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music with John Mack and his bachelor's degree from the University of Southern California with Allan Vogel and David Weiss, a gentleman who also taught him to surf.

Parry performs and teaches internationally in concertos, recitals, masterclasses, and chamber music. In recent seasons, he appeared as soloist with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Prague Summer Nights Festival, and the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra.

My role is to help each student realize their artistic potential and achieve their individual goals in an environment that is safe, inclusive, encouraging and honest.
