Oboist Jeanette Zyko, praised by Fanfare Magazine and ArtsNash for her “refined playing” and “achingly beautiful lines,” enjoys an active career as a chamber and orchestra musician.
A versatile artist, she has played music ranging from twentieth-century composer Louis Andriessen to Baroque composer Jan Zelenka, and her solo and chamber music performances have taken her across the United States and abroad. Equally at home as an orchestra musician, Zyko has performed with the Nashville Symphony, Nashville Opera, Indianapolis Symphony, Orchestra of St. Luke’s, Gateway Chamber Orchestra, and Paducah Symphony. Prior to joining the faculty of JMU in 2016, she held positions at Austin Peay State University and the University of Costa Rica. Zyko received her training at Hartt School of Music, Butler University, and Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Humbert Lucarelli, Malcolm Smith, and Stephen Taylor.
