Patricia Emerson Mitchell is the principal oboe for Opera San Jose and second oboe for both Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley and Symphony Silicon Valley. In addition to being a professional musician, Patricia is also one of the few musicians who have entered the world of music blogging in its early formation.
Her weblog, Oboeinsight (clever name, huh?), is a popular hub for oboe related material, conversations on classical music, and is a focal point for cultural activity in the San Jose area. Patricia’s contribution focuses on some of the real nuts-and-bolts aspects of taking a friend to the orchestra.
Patricia is also known for her sharp wit and sense of humor, which run rampant through her weblog.
