Established in 1865, the Oberlin Conservatory is the oldest continuously operating conservatory of music in the United States. Today, the conservatory offers eight undergraduate majors to its approximately 580 students from almost all 50 U.S. states and 22 countries.
One event hosted at the conservatory was a recital performed by pianist Myra Huang and Grammy-nominated American lyric tenor Nicholas Phan on February 3, 2016. These two replaced John Relyea and Warren Jones, both of whom were originally scheduled to perform on this date. The publication “Opera News” named Ms. Huang as one of the top accompanists of her generation. She has worked with the New York City Opera and frequently assists Placido Domingo on his multinational competition Operalia. Mr. Phan has performed at the San Francisco Symphony, the English Chamber Orchestra, the Chicago Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, and the Cleveland Orchestra, among others.
