Elaine Heltman, principal oboist |  Friday, July 10 @ 4:00 pm

Elaine Heltman hails from Saddle Brook, New Jersey, and graduated from Ithaca College School of Music. While leading a high school marching band in New Jersey, she also studied with Joseph Robinson, former Principal Oboe of the New York Philharmonic. In 1981, Heltman’s career as a professional oboist was ignited when she was appointed to the Filarmónica de Caracas, Venezuela. Greg Heltman joined her there on Valentine’s Day, 1981; they married in 1988 and have been inseparable ever since. In 1982, the Heltmans moved to Israel to perform and teach. Elaine performed regularly with the Jerusalem Radio Symphony and Israel Chamber  Orchestra, and taught oboe at the Beersheva Conservatory and at Kibbutz Ein Charod. In 1983 they moved to New Mexico with dreams of starting their  own orchestra, a dream realized in 1984. In the more than 30 years since, many of you have heard Elaine perform as Principal Oboe of The Santa Fe Symphony Orchestra and Chorus. Learn more …
