Jessica Murrow


Jessica Murrow has been an oboist for over 50 years. She earned a Master of Music at the Juilliard School in New York and continued to freelance in the city for the next 20 years with many groups, including the New York City Opera, Orpheus Ensemble, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, and Manhattan Woodwind Quintet.

In the 1980’s Jessica stopped playing the oboe. Turning to theater, she worked as a stage manager, sound designer, and sound mixer on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and TV. She was interested in English Morris dancing, and for the last 40 years has played pipe and tabor and melodeon for a New York City Morris Side (team).  Eventually, she started to play oboe again, and English horn for English country dancing, and has played on several dance recordings with the many talented folk musicians in Western Massachusetts and Brattleboro, Vermont.

Jessica lives in Shelburne Falls, Massachusetts, and plays 1st oboe with the Windham Philharmonic.  She currently teaches oboe at the Brattleboro Music Center.
