Priscilla Herreid has played early oboes and recorder with Trinity Baroque Orchestra (NYC), The Handel & Haydn Society, Philharmonia Baroque, Portland Baroque, Venice Baroque (IT), Juilliard Baroque, Musica Angelica, Mercury, and Tempesta di Mare, and can be heard playing all manner of earlier wind instruments with Piffaro, the Waverly Consort, Hesperus, and Ex Umbris. New music audiences will sometimes find her singing and playing with the Metropolis Ensemble, the Second Instrumental Unit, Cygnus, and the Momenta Quartet.

Last season, Herreid played for the Shakespeare on Broadway productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. Later this summer, she will return to France for her third year as principal oboist for the Festival Dans les Jardins de William Christie.

Herreid directed the Early Music Ensemble at Temple University for two years, and is a frequent guest coach for baroque ensembles at Yale University. She has taught recorder and classes on Renaissance sacred polyphony at the Madison (WI) Early Music Festival, and often leads chapter meetings of the American Recorder Society.

Herreid is a graduate of Temple University (oboe, Louis Rosenblatt) and The Juilliard School (historical performance - baroque oboe, Gonzalo Ruiz). She can be heard on the Navona, Zefiro, and Musica Omnia labels. Soon to be released are Matthew Greenbaum’s NAMELESS (featuring her as one of three wordless sopranos), and a recording of Vivaldi viola d’amore concertos, performed by Rachel Barton Pine. Her performances have been called “spirited” by The New York Times and “particularly fine” by the Washington Post.
