The loboe project

new works for the extended-range oboe

The Loboe Project was founded by Alison Lowell in 2009 in order to commission original works and transcriptions for the extended-range oboe and to promote contemporary oboe music. The "Loboe" extends to A3 and opens up an exciting new world of compositional possibilities.


As a recipient of the "Investing in Artists" grant from the Center for Cultural Innovation in California, Alison has since performed many new works written specifically for her and has collaborated with composers around the world.
