Three Reeds Duo
With co-founders Leah and Paul Forsyth, the Three Reeds Duo is a unique ensemble consisting of solely an oboe and saxophone. This duo, formed in 2005, has begun building a repertoire catalogue for this unique combination of instruments, ranging from newly commissioned works, to transcriptions of standard repertoire. Three Reeds has performed in a variety of venues throughout the United States, Europe, and South America, ranging from World Saxophone Congresses to International Double Reed Society conventions and collegiate recitals. In 2015 and 2018, Three Reeds was the winner of the Alford Professorship at Northwestern State University, where they are both professors on their respective instruments. These professorships allowed them to record their debut CD, signals cross, as well as there new album, Metamorphosis. Released in the summer of 2016, signals cross was the first CD ever recorded of oboe/saxophone duos. Three Reeds Duo has now commissioned works from such composers as Gregory Wanamaker, Marcus Maroney, Kyle Blaha, Alyssa Morris, Richard Rose, and Peter Lieuwen.
