Lindsey Reymore is an musician and educator in Columbus, OH and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Music Theory at The Ohio State University, where her research focus is in music perception and cognition. As a freelance musician, she performs on oboe, English horn, and Baroque oboe, teaches private music lessons, and handcrafts oboe and English horn reeds for sale.
Lindsey has served on faculty at Vanderbilt University and at Belmont University and has played principal oboe with The Jackson Symphony Orchestra and The Murfreesboro Symphony Orchestra. She earned a Master of Music from The University of Texas at Austin, where she studied with Rebecca Henderson, and a Bachelor of Music in oboe performance from Vanderbilt University, where she studied with Jared Hauser. She performed with The University of Texas Wind Ensemble under conductor Jerry Junkin during their 2014 around-the-world tour; Lindsey has also played ensemble tours throughout China and Brazil and chamber music concerts in London and France. During the summers, she has performed with various festival orchestras, including the Banff Festival Orchestra (Canada), National Music Festival (MD), Hot Springs Music Festival (AR), and the Marrowstone Fellowship Chamber Orchestra (WA).
Lindsey has presented research in music perception and cognition at national and international conferences, and she was awarded the 2018 first prize Early Career Researcher Award by the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences in Music for work on the linguistic attributes of timbre. Though she is always involved in a diverse range of exciting music projects, much of her current research involves the cross-sensory nature of timbre, or sound quality, descriptions.
Originally from Stuart, Florida, Lindsey also enjoys traveling, reading, practicing and teaching yoga, and spending quality time with her infamously lazy cat, Claudette.
