Congratulations to my undergraduate oboe professor and mentor, Dr. Doris DeLoach on her retirement from Baylor University! Dr. DeLoach will retire from teaching over 45 years at Baylor University at the end of the 2017-2018 school year. Her students have gone onto play with major symphony orchestras around the country, earn Doctoral degrees and become oboe professors at major universities, and teach students from around the world. Dr. DeLoach's students have also gone on to study at Cleveland Institute of Music, Juilliard School of Music, Mannes, Manhattan, Fulbright Scholars, Northwestern University, and all of the top music schools in the country. I am proud to have studied with Dr. DeLoach and to be a part of her musical legacy!
