Meet Our Musicians: Andrea Bonsignore

December 12, 2012
Andrea Bonsignore

This week we’re putting the spotlight on one of our musicians. Oboist Andrea Bonsignore is a graduate of Oberlin College and New England Conservatory. She is the oboist for the theaters in Boston that present Broadway touring musicals and is a member of North Winds – the Young Audience Woodwind Quintet of Massachusetts.  In her capacity as a free-lancer, she has played and recorded with the Boston Symphony, Boston Pops, Emmanuel Music and appeared in YoYo Ma’s video chronicling his music experiences at Tanglewood.

She recently authored “Doxie and Andre’s Flight Path” – a story inspired by the watercolors of Roger Kizik featuring two intrepid ducklings, and brought to life with music selections played by small ensembles of orchestral instruments.  In 2010 she toured nationally with the 75th Anniversary Production of “Porgy & Bess.”  Along with her music career, she is a professional life model for visual artists in and around Boston, and is a writer for The Daily Clue. Read examples of her more recent pieces here.

Andrea also discovered that she enjoys incorporating her love of music with video. A few weeks ago she entered into the Buzzards Bay Film Festival‘s “One Minute Cell Phone Movie Contest” where she played the Italian Baroque Oboe Sonata and included imagery that brought the music to life. Andrea placed in first that week. Enjoy her video shown below.

Her next performance will be with North Winds on January 11th in Nantucket. There will be three shows at 5, 6, and 7 ‘clock for children and families.
