Home Grown Series concerts made possible, in part, with support from the ArtsEverywhere Grant from the Community Foundation of St. Joseph County, and the Arts Project Support Grant through the Indiana Arts Commission.

This is both a Chamber Arts Series and Home Grown Series presentation. The program, “Rising Again”, features Jennet Ingle on oboe and Mariah Boucher on piano. 

" Live music is opening back up in this country, and it really feels like a Rebirth!  With pianist Mariah Boucher, Jennet Ingle will present a recital themed on Transformation, featuring works by Katherine Needleman, Alyssa Morris, Mary Chandler, and Dirk-Michael Kirsch.

Jennet is a master of helpful, inviting musical introductions - let her invite you into these new works written by oboists for oboists and for YOU. “

Jennet Ingle loves the oboe. She has built an active career around performing, teaching, making reeds for and writing about it, and believes deeply that everyone else loves it, too. Perhaps they just don’t know it yet.

Jennet Ingle has been Principal Oboist of the South Bend Symphony Orchestra since 2006 and holds that position with the Northwest Indiana Symphony. Jennet is a soloist at heart, joyfully taking over any stage that will have her.

Her lifelong interest in new music led to a recent commissioning project – Dreams and Visions (Searching the Shadows) by Marjorie Rusche is a triptych based on cards from the Tarot deck.

As the owner and operator of Jennet Ingle Reeds, she makes and sells over two hundred handmade reeds every month to oboists all over the world and has helped hundreds of people with their own reed-making through her video series, The Five Minute Reedmaker, her weekly online Reed Club and annual live Oboe Reed Boot Camps.

In 2020, the most isolating year of our lifetimes, Jennet worked tirelessly to build community for oboists. Her signature group program, the Invincible Oboist, demystifies instrumental skills and helps oboists to get past the STRUGGLE to find ease in their playing. She started a group program for reed making beginners, as well – Zero to Reedmaker – which teaches the process through a series of group classes and accountability.

In her spare time, Jennet pours her energy into Prone Oboe, a blog about her active life and a behind-the-scenes look at the process of learning, teaching, and performing music at a high level. She sends a weekly email newsletter filled with ideas for her community – about the intersections of oboe, life, and entrepreneurship.

Her first CD, Music That SHOULD Have Been Written for the Oboe, was released in December of 2016.

Jennet’s book, The Happiest Musician, will be available in the late Fall of 2021.

Jennet is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, where she studied with Richard Killmer. She can be found on the web at

Described as “unique and riveting” by Harmonie magazine, American pianist Mariah Boucher has distinguished herself as a leading collaborator, specializing in chamber music and vocal coaching. Active as a chamber musician and piano soloist, Mariah has performed in venues across the United States, including the Aspen Music Festival, Bay View Music Festival, Detroit Institute of the Arts, and West Michigan Symphony Series.

Mariah is a strong proponent of new music. She has worked closely with contemporary composers, including Gabriela Lena Frank, Pierre Jalbert, Evan Chambers, Michael Daugherty, Roger Zare, and Logan Skelton. Mariah has also worked with the Kresge Literary Fellow Terry Blackhawk, presenting her poetry with newly commissioned music at the Art X Festival, as well as poets Marsha Music and Justin Rogers. She is also a founding member of the Protea Trio, active in the Detroit area, focusing on works that blend Latin, jazz, vocal, and contemporary influences.

As an opera and art song coach, Mariah had coached and performed at such festivals as the Spoleto Music Program, Italian Operatic Experience, Main Street Opera Theater, and Opera on Wheels. She has been the Music Director of the South Bend Lyric Opera for the past five productions.

Mariah received both her Master of Music and Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan in Collaborative Piano, where she studied with Martin Katz, Logan Skelton and Katherine Collier. Mariah currently serves as Staff Accompanist at Indiana University South Bend, as well as a Vocal Coach at The University of Notre Dame.
