Hey there! I'm Chris Gaudi and for the past 15 years I've had the great privilege of performing with a number of orchestras across the United States and around the world.
I've served as the Acting Associate Principal Oboe of the San Francisco Symphony, the Acting Assistant Principal Oboe of the National Symphony Orchestra, as interim Professor of Oboe at the University of Indiana Bloomington Jacob School of Music, Principal Oboe in the San Diego Symphony, Guest Principal Oboe with the Aspen Chamber Orchestra, the Atlanta, Seattle, and Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestras, and I've been a frequent substitute with the Metropolitan Opera. I've also performed with the Cleveland Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and for multiple events at The White House.
I've participated in numerous festivals including Aspen, Kent/Blossom, Mainly Mozart, Spoleto (Italy), the New York String Orchestra Seminar, and the Interlochen Arts Camp, and have presented master classes at The Aspen Music Festival, The Colburn School, Interlochen, and at the Hidden Valley Music Seminars.
As a student of Elaine Douvas and John Mack, I received both my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from The Juilliard School.
