Canadian oboist Ruth Denton approaches music through a historical lens, considering the original intent of the composer and the musical practices at that point in time. Founder and Artistic Director of Cor Unum Ensemble, she treasures her time spent working in Toronto with her mentor John Abberger, Toronto Bach Festival, and Tafelmusik. In July, she returned to work at the Amherst Early Music Festival. In October, Ruth made her Colorado debut with Sinfonia Spirituosa, and performed J.S. Bach's Concerto for oboe and violin with Rezonance Baroque Ensemble in Toronto. Now based in Colorado, she is working on a doctoral degree at the University of Northern Colorado.
