Hailed by the New York Times for her “magnificently sweet tone,” oboist Keve Wilson released her solo album Pure Imagination on Composers Concordance Records/NAXOS. A past winner of Concert Artists Guild and solo oboist with the Grammy nominated Absolute Ensemble, Keve has performed in Amsterdam, Argentina, Austria, Dubai, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Latvia, Mexico, Panama, New Zealand, and South Korea. A two-time recipient of the Clifford-Levy Creativity Grant, Keve traveled to Makuleke Village in South Africa where she participated in learning and teaching folk songs of the region. Keve enjoyed two years as the oboist in the Tony Award winning Broadway musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. She inspires visiting high school band and orchestra students from around the country with her original show Believe NYC---from the Band Room to Broadway.

From Hyde Park, NY, Keve graduated from the Eastman School of Music. She studied oboe with Richard Killmer, piano with Judith Handman and dance with Elizabeth Clark. She lives in New York City with her husband and Portuguese water dog.
