Open House Event with Guest Repairman Brian Seaton

Double or Nothing Reeds is having its first OPEN HOUSE event at our shop in Mt. Washington on October 25, 2014! We are thrilled to be joined by Master Oboe Repairman, Brian Seaton from North American Oboe House!
Brian Seaton will be taking appointments for basic instrument adjustments, so make plans to come to our shop to try our new and consignment instruments, browse our selection of cane and tools, and have your instrument feel like new again!

Brian Seaton will teach a class on basic instrument adjustment for students at the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music from 1:00-2:30 and will begin taking appointments for adjustments at 3:00 pm.

Book an appointment with Brian using the form on our DNR Open House Event Page! Provide your preferred time frame, and we will get back to you with your appointment time. A 20 minute appointment with Brian is $20. Please bring a cash or check to your appointment.

Have you ever wanted to select your own gouged cane or tube cane instead of having a bag mailed to you? Our shop will be open to the public from 2:30 to 5:00 pm for browsing our selection of cane and tools and for trying instruments. We have a wide selection of new and used instruments as well as cane, tools, accessories, and consignment items!

Double or Nothing Oboe and Bassoon Camp

Yes! You read that title correctly! We are proud to announce the first year of the Double or Nothing Oboe and Bassoon Camp! We will be on the campus of Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio from Monday July 13 thru Friday July 17, 2015!

Wait, what happenEd to Queen City Double Reed camp?

We had a great experience with Xavier University and QCDRC, but we are growing in new ways and we have a new partnership to help continue our growth and to enhance our ability to work with young double reed players. Many things are still the same, including our basic schedule and faculty members, but our new friends at the Wright State School of Music will help us make camp a more memorable and more educational experience for students.

Check back for more updates and announcements about Double or Nothing Oboe and Bassoon Camp!

Halloween with Double or Nothing!

Halloween in the Cemetery!

Sponsored in part by Double or Nothing Reeds, the Double or Nothing Ensemble will partner with the Spring Grove Cemetery to provide a family friendly Halloween event to be held in the Norman Chapel on the grounds of the Spring Grove Cemetery on October 24th, 2014.  We will provide an enriched experience, complete with Halloween music and stories, in a safe environment for people of all ages.  The program will start at 6:30pm.  

We will perform fun, recognizable, and holiday-specific music as a double reed quartet comprising of two oboes, one english horn, and one bassoon.  Music and storytelling will feature pieces arranged by Lauren Piccirillo as well as a guest appearance by Brian Seaton!

Punch and treats will be served after the performance.  

Admission is free with the donation of a canned or non-perishable food product.  All donations will be given to the Freestore Foodbank.
