Three Reeds Duo

With co-founders Leah and Paul Forsyth, the Three Reeds Duo is a unique ensemble consisting of solely an oboe and saxophone.  This duo, formed in 2005, has begun building a repertoire ranging from baroque and classical transcriptions to contemporary concert literature. Three Reeds has performed in a variety of venues throughout the United States and the U.K., ranging from NASA Conferences and World Saxophone Congresses to traditional wedding ceremonies. In 2015 Three Reeds was the winner of the Alford Professorship at Northwestern State University, where they are both professors on their respective instruments. This professorship allowed them to record their debut CD, signals cross. Released in the summer of 2016, this is the first CD ever recorded of oboe/saxophone duos.  The Three Reeds Duo has commissioned works for oboe/saxophone duo from such composers as Kyle Blaha, Marcus Maroney, Peter Lieuwen, and Gregory Wanamaker.
