    Robinson-Barker, Kathleen

    Oboist who has managed to keep one foot in the recording studio and one foot on stage for the better part of three decades. 


    In 1979, she appeared on Frank Sinatra’s boxed set, Trilogy.  Then she became involved with the American Harp Society and the South Bay Chamber Music Society, Inc.  On 13th December 1985, Kathleen appeared with the Marchand Ensemble in an SBSMS program that featured music ranging from Johannes Brahms to Jean Francaix.  A year later, she could be found at the National Harp Conference in Los Angeles, performing the Andante sostenuto from Toru Takemitsu’s “Eucalypts II for Flute, Oboe and Harp”.  On 16th January 1987, she returned to the SBSMS with the Mladi Wind Quintet, again playing a wide variety of music from the pens of such diverse talents as Anton Reicha and Gyorgy Ligeti. 


    In the mid-‘90s, she appeared on a pair of albums, Harry Connick, Jr.’s 1993 stocking stuffer, When My Heart Finds Christmas, and Julie Migenes’s 1994 Hollywood tribute album, Smile.  She is also credited with playing English horn and oboe on Cindy Paley’s Shabbat Shalom. 


    In the new millennium, she teamed up with the Dale Warland Singers at the National Harp Conference in St. Paul, Minnesota, and in the recording studio for another Yuletide release, Christmas with the Dale Warland Singers.
