Priscilla Herreid plays early oboes and recorder with Trinity Baroque Orchestra, The Handel + Haydn Society, The Sebastians, Boston Baroque, and Tempesta di Mare, and has made appearances with Portland Baroque, Philharmonia Baroque, Les Arts Florissants, Venice Baroque, Juilliard Baroque, TENET, New York Baroque Inc., Wiener Akademie, Musica Angelica, and Mr. Jones & the Engines of Destruction. She can also be seen playing renaissance winds with Piffaro, Hesperus, The Waverly Consort, Ex Umbris, The Dark Horse Consort, The City Musick, ARTEK, Cançonièr, The Rose Ensemble, The Bishop’s Band, and The Broken Consort. The New York Times has described her playing as “spirited,” and praised her “soaring recorder, gorgeously played…” Priscilla was part of the onstage band for the 2013-2014 Shakespeare on Broadway productions of Twelfth Night and Richard III, starring Mark Rylance and Stephen Fry. She directed the Early Music Ensemble at Temple University for two years, and is on the faculty of the Madison (WI) Early Music Festival, where she has led recorder and alta capella ensembles and a survey of sacred Italian polyphony. For seven years, Priscilla was the soprano at various New York City parishes that celebrate the Latin mass, and still sings occasionally for the mass around NY and CT.
She received her master’s degree from The Juilliard School, where she was a member of the inaugural class of Juilliard Historical Performance and a baroque oboe student of Gonzalo Ruiz. She received her bachelor’s degree from Temple University, where she was a modern oboe student of the late Louis Rosenblatt.
