Oboe student Biz Tucker wins 2022 Winds, Brass & Percussion Concerto Competition

Congratulations to current Bachelor of Music student Biz Tucker, oboe, who recently won the Don Wright Faculty of Music's 2022-23 Winds, Brass & Percussion Concerto Competition. Tucker is a student of Shelley Heron

Each year, winds, brass and percussion students at Western compete to perform a concerto with the Western University Wind Ensemble or Symphonic Band. All undergraduate, diploma, and masters woodwind, brass, and percussion students who are enrolled in a large ensemble and private lessons at Western are eligible to compete in this competition.

Tucker performed Solo Pour Hautbois by Émile Paladihle, and looks forward to performing the piece with the Western University Wind Ensemble on February 10, 2023. "It’s a very romantic piece and a lot of fun to perform with an ensemble so I am looking forward to it!"
