With concert appearances throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, American oboist Andrea Gullickson’s passionate and creative music making has won her universal critical acclaim from both press and audience members. Reviewers find her performance marked by “passages of ghostly beauty played with transparent grace” (Santa Barbara Independent), and that “she plays with a beautiful sense of line and shape” (Journal of the International Double Reed) and a “big colorful sound that she uses to make clear-headed decisive statements” (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel).
Andrea’s recent concert engagements have included solo and chamber music performances at the Rimsky-Korsakov National Conservatory (St. Petersburg, Russia), National Museum of Women in the Arts (Washington, DC), Wuhan Conservatory of Music (Wuhan, China), Banff Centre for the Arts, and Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall as well as numerous concert series throughout the Midwest.
Dr. Gullickson is Professor of Music and Chair of the Department of Music at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. In 2001 she was honored with a University Endowed Professorship for excellence in teaching and professional achievement. She is the recipient of grants for her research in 18th Century music and the oboe d’amore.
