Charlotte Ethington

Dr. Charlotte Ethington, oboist, is an active performer and teacher in the greater Phoenix area, where she enjoys a wide variety of musical opportunities. Recent performance engagements have included collaborations with the Arizona Bach Festival, Arizona Cantilena Chorale, Arizona Opera, El Paso Symphony Orchestra, Musica Nova Orchestra, The Phoenix Symphony, Prescott POPS Symphony, Tucson Symphony Orchestra, and West Valley Symphony, among others. Charlotte maintains a vibrant private studio for oboists of all ages, and is also in high demand as an oboe instructor and clinician at schools throughout the Phoenix Metro Area.

Dr. Ethington completed her DMA in oboe performance at Arizona State University in 2020, under the expert tutelage of Professor Martin Schuring, for whom she served as a graduate teaching assistant. She also completed a MM in oboe performance at ASU in 2017, and a BM in oboe performance in 2015 at Brigham Young University, where she studied with Dr. Geralyn Giovannetti.

A native New Mexican, Charlotte feels her freezer is never well-stocked unless it contains an ample supply of Hatch green chile. When she is not making reeds, playing oboe, or teaching, she is likely exploring new recipes in the kitchen, reading recent additions to her bookshelf, or playing board games with her wonderful husband, TJ.
