My Life as a San Jose Symphony Musician

Growing up as a child, I had always been fascinated with the world of music. At an early age, it led me to study various instruments that led to my career as an oboist. Although I know how to play different musical instruments like the piano and cello, I chose the oboe because it plays in the soprano range which I like.

Oboes are great instruments and are typically made of wood. They normally have metal keys, conical bores, and a flared bell. Music and sounds are emitted by blowing the reed, and the vibration happens when it passes through the columns. The sound of an oboe is highly versatile and has been interpreted as brilliant and golden which led me to prefer the instrument among others.

Living in Silicon Valley and being raised by parents whom both had a background in music, it became a natural course maybe because of the genes. Although I have had struggles in life, it always led me back to music which led to my profession. I have worked as a San Jose symphony musician for quite some time, and I can say that it is both fulfilling and challenging. Not only are you recognized by your peers because of your talent, but you are also contributing to something greater than just yourself.

One thing I like about being able to perform is the extravagance of the industry. It allows you to mingle with people of high stature and brush shoulders with pretty well known people. You also get perks and other special treatment for being a musician. You get to form relationships with people from different backgrounds and make friends especially with those who are privileged. I can say that it can be used as a platform to make a name in the industry where everyone wants to achieve something great.

As an oboist, you are part of a great symphony that works for a common goal. It allows you to bond with other musicians and form friendships with them. We have had many events, and every one of them is truly unforgettable. From rehearsals down to the last minute adjustments are experiences no one involved ever really forgets.

It is always memorable playing music to a huge crowd of people who enjoy classical music. Moreover, like every performance, I always have a strict sense of awareness with my surroundings. The very first thing I notice with every event is the comfort of our venue and the hushed crowd as they file in being careful not to disturb those already seated. The sense of awed reverence that envelopes the onlookers is palpable. This is home to me.
