    Heller, Marsha J. (1939-Present)

    She is an oboist and artist born in Cleveland, Ohio, into a family where most of the members were also artists.

     

    After making the decision to become a musician she took her studies in New York and at Oberlin, Salzburg Mozarteum.

     

    She pursued her career as a professional oboist and went on to win the Concert Artists’ Guild.  Following this success she also began to concentrate on her artistic abilities and started designing the posters and fliers that promoted the recital performances she was giving.

     

    She attended the School of Visual Arts and took painting classes at New York University.  Since the mid-1980s she has paired up her successful careers both as a musician and as an artist so that they are both evident in each discipline.

     

    Her work as a musician has seen her performing as a soloist and a member of the Berkshire Bach Ensemble, Bronx Arts Ensemble, Leonia Chamber Musicians Society, New York Pops Orchestra and Trio Bell’Arte among others.

     

    In the recording studio she has performed on many albums with just a selection including Carlos Surinach: Ritmo Jondo with The Bronx Arts Ensemble, Songs I Heard by Harry Connick Jr., Land of the Bottom Line by John Gorka, Vintage ’78 by Eddie Kendricks, Mandy Patinkin by Mandy Patinkin, Bernadette Peters Loves Rodgers and Hammerstein by Bernadette Peters, Handel in Rome by Queens Chamber Band, Joplin: The Entertainer and J.C.F. Bach: Trios and Sonatas by Trio Bell’Arte as well as Henry Cowell: A Continuum Portrait 1, Ruth Crawford Seeger – A Continuum Portrait 6 and the soundtrack of Fame.

     

    In the field of musical education she is a private teacher based in Leonia, New Jersey.
