Hailed by the New York Times for her “magnificently sweet tone” oboist Keve Wilson skipped music theory and history as a kid to practice Irish jigs and reels instead.

Other Broadway shows she has played in include Carousel and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder.
Keve teaches early childhood music at The Diller-Quaile School and is a teaching artist for the 92Y and Bridge Arts Ensemble. A past winner of Concert Artists Guild and solo oboist with the Grammy nominated Absolute Ensemble, she released her album Pure Imagination on Composers Concordance/NAXOS. A two-time recipient of the CliffordLevy Creativity Grant, Keve traveled to Makuleke Village in South Africa to learn and teach folk songs of the region.
From Hyde Park, NY and a graduate of Eastman School of Music, Keve lives in Manhattan with her husband Kerry and Portuguese water dog Bugsy.
