Oboist Frank Rosenwein was appointed principal oboe of The Cleveland Orchestra in 2005. Rosenwein graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2000 where he studied with former Cleveland Orchestra principal oboe John Mack. He then went on to earn a Master’s degree from Juilliard, studying with Metropolitan Opera principal Elaine Douvas. Prior to his position with the Orchestra, Rosenwein served as principal oboe of the San Diego Symphony and the San Diego Opera.
Rosenwein is an avid chamber musician, and while he is a regular at the Marlboro Festival and has performed with the Mainly Mozart Festival in San Diego, The Seattle Chamber Music Society, and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, he is also a part of the unique group called Ensemble HD, which is known for playing chamber music in nontraditional venues—including dive bars.
In addition to his performance career, Rosenwein holds teaching positions as head of the oboe department at CIM and at the Kent/Blossom Music Festival.
