Robert McManus

Robert McManus was born in Bayport, MN where he currently resides with four cats and his mother. When he’s not practicing or teaching the oboe in his studio with its wood burning stove, he enjoys the outdoors and is the volunteer steward of the DNR’s St. Croix Savanna Scientific and Natural Area. This includes family land put into permanent conservation easement. The daily task of wrapping and scraping oboe reeds has blossomed into a marginally profitable reed making business. He is also the second oboe/assistant principal oboe of the South Dakota Symphony Orchestra in Sioux Falls, SD. His teachers have included Richard Killmer, Kathryn Greenbank, Rebecca Henderson, Rhadames Angelucci, and Julie Madura.
