Christa Robinson

Oboe

Oboist extraordinaire Christa Robinson moved to New York City from Saskatchewan, Canada, where she performed as Principal Oboe with the Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra. She now lives in Brooklyn, NY and is a member of the Colonial Symphony Orchestra, the Canadian Chamber Orchestra of NYC, and the Double Entendre Music Ensemble, and can frequently be heard performing with the Harrisburg Symphony, The Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas, the DiCapo Opera, and new music ensembles Sequitur, Argento, Alarm Will Sound, the S.E.M Orchestra, and Signal. In 2010, Christa premiered an oboe quartet written by Martin Bresnick commissioned through the Meet the Composers organization, and awarded to the Double Entendre Music Ensemble. In addition to performing, Christa is a faculty member of the Third Street Music School Settlement, and teaches early childhood music at several nursery and elementary schools throughout NYC. When away from the stage or the classroom, Christa can be found in the pottery studio covered from head to toe in clay.
