Event Type

Originally from Santa Barbara, California, multi-instrumentalist / singer / songwriter / performer, Marianne Osiel, was a sought-after “sideman” in Nashville for a decade and an halt, as a recording session player and singer while also fulfilling her “day job” playing oboe in the Nashville Symphony.
She remembers, with fondness, being encouraged by conductor Kenneth Schermerhorn to march up in front of the orchestra and audience and make up lyrics to the very melodies that shaped the Russian symphonies the orchestra would then proceed to play during kiddies concerts, so that there could be a bridge made between their lives in full color and these otherwise “dead white men with big white hair” who were credited as having written these epic brilliant aural novels.

She also was hired by NSO’s pop conductor, Amerigo Marino, to sing a few torch tunes for folks during their summer run-out’s.

Marianne has performed and/or recorded with artists such as John Hall, Nanci Griffith, Jennifer Maidman, Rachel Sage, and Daryl Tookes, just to name a few.

Her instrumental arsenal includes oboe/English horn, flute, recorder, piano, guitar, and voice.

For years, Marianne made her living in the classical and the pop world at the same time, sometimes in symphony orchestras, others as a “sideman” for other artists, and then as center stage doing her own music, solo or in bands she has lead.

As a string quartet arranger, Marianne has written and recorded for artists such as David Olney, Susan Piper, Bob Hillman, as well as her own CD’s.

Her original recordings include Strange Girl and Full of Wholes (both singer/songwriter CD’s), a “live”duo recording from the famous Bluebird Café in Nashville, and “How The Light Gets In” “, an all-improvised instrumental CD featuring duets with four uniquely gifted New York keyboardists, with Marianne on oboe and English horn.

Her latest musical inclusion is in the world of improvisation, having been asked to join Karl Berger’s “Improvisors Orchestra” (Kingston), as well as working with other “soundpainters” in the area.

Marianne teaches music privately in the Ulster County, NY region and on Zoom.
