We’re delighted to share the news that oboist David Dickey has won the recent audition for membership in the orchestra. David is no stranger to Philharmonia, having joined us on a number of programs as an extra musician, appearing for the first time in April 2017 for Rameu’s Le Temple de la Gloire.
Dickey, a native of Bowie, Maryland, is a historical wind player and vocalist born into a long line of professional musicians. A graduate of The Juilliard Historical Performance Program, he is a recipient of the Norman Benzaquen Career Advancement Grant and a fellowship from The English Concert in America. Now based in New York City, he can be heard playing oboe around the country and internationally with acclaimed baroque ensembles, including Boston Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra & Chorale, Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, The Handel and Haydn Society, The English Concert, and Trinity Baroque Orchestra at Wall Street. Dickey, a countertenor, has recently sung with ARTEK, St. Thomas Church Fifth Avenue Choir of Men and Boys, and Concordian Dawn, a NYC-based medieval ensemble. He was recently featured on an album with The English Concert in their recording of Handel’s Serse, as well as Concordian Dawn’s debut album Fortuna Antiqua et Ultra.
Please join us in giving a warm welcome to David Dickey!
