About the Artist:
Heidi C. Huseman Dewally – Oboe and English horn

Heidi C. Huseman Dewally was born a “Hoosier” (born in Indianapolis, Indiana); however, she was raised a “Sooner” in Norman, Oklahoma. She has fond memories of her childhood home, especially since she met her husband, Michaël Dewally at the University of Oklahoma. Mrs. Huseman Dewally earned a bachelor of musical arts, oboe performance and a master in business administration from the University of Oklahoma.

Mrs. Huseman Dewally won the third oboe position in the Oklahoma City Philharmonic in May 1998. She won the principal oboe position with the Oshkosh Symphony in May 2006. She currently plays 2nd oboe and English horn with the Wisconsin Wind Orchestra and the Green Bay Symphony Orchestra and also plays oboe with the Racine Symphony Orchestra. Mrs. Huseman Dewally has performed oboe and English horn in the Lawton Philharmonic, Enid-Phillips Symphony, Skylight Theater Opera, Milwaukee Chamber, Milwaukee Ballet, Waukesha Symphony, Bel Canto Chorus, and Kenosha Symphony Orchestras. Mrs. Huseman Dewally has taught oboe students ranging from ages 10 – 80 in the Oklahoma City and Milwaukee metro areas. She is the oboe instructor at Cardinal Stritch University.

In October 2003, Mrs. Huseman Dewally was selected to perform in the Civic Music Association of Milwaukee’s Young Artist recital series. Mrs. Huseman Dewally won the Betty Lou Scandling Hubin Scholarship for World Music/Multicultural Music from the Mu Phi Epsilon Foundation. The award funded a recital series entitled MOSAICS, with performances in September 2008 and January 2009. The recitals featured music, dance, and song from countries of all continents as well as a media presentation of the corresponding countries. Mrs. Huseman Dewally enjoyed reaching out to the community and celebrating diverse cultures and she plans to pursue similar projects developed for school-aged children.

The “Buffalo Ballads” title was inspired first and foremost by the music selection of American composers celebrating our country’s folk songs and spirituals tradition. The buffalo is a perfect symbol of the resilience of the American Spirit and a highly romantic figure. The CD by a happy accident was also recorded in Buffalo, New York. Please e-mail Heidi and her husband, Michaël, at frenchlovr@ameritech.net, if you would like to know more information regarding Heidi’s live performances.
