About the musicians
Bach, Beatles and Beyond”, a concert designed to appeal to all ages as well as diverse musical interests, will feature oboists Olav van Hezewijk and Marta Boratgis and organist Walden Moore along with the Trinity Boys Choir, the Trinity Girls Choir and other musicians of Trinity Church on the Green.
A native of Holland, Olav van Hezewijk has charmed audiences in the Connecticut/New York area since 1982 with his dazzling technique and lyrical phrasing. A graduate of the Yale School of Music, Mr. van Hezewijk is principal oboe of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra and the Colorado Music Festival. Olav van Hezewijk has been a frequent concerto soloist with the New Haven Symphony, Jupiter Symphony, Colorado Music Festival and Yale Camerata. This past February he and his wife, Marta Boratgis, appeared with I Musici Montreal.
Marta Boratgis is assistant principal oboe of the New Haven Symphony Orchestra and second oboe of the Colorado Music Festival at Boulder. She has been performing in the region since 1984. She is regarded as one of the premier oboists and orchestral contractors in Connecticut. A native of Colorado, Ms. Boratgis holds a Bachelor of Music in Performance from the University of Colorado and two Certificates of Study from the Accademia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy.
Founded in 1885, the Choir of Men and Boys is one of the oldest existing such choirs in the United States. The Choir of Men and Girls, founded in 2003, has attained critical acclaim. Both choirs enjoy a national and international reputation for musical training and excellence. The choirs have performed at such venues as Yale’s Woolsey Hall in New Haven, the White House and the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., and numerous churches and cathedrals in England and Europe. A universally respected figure in American church music for his expertise as an organist and choir trainer, Walden Moore has been Director of Music at Trinity Church since 1984.
