After her graduate studies, she took an Arts Outreach internship in Northwest Italy where she lived for 3 months. Stephanie currently works in education while also freelancing and maintaining a studio of oboe students. Throughout her musical endeavors, Stephanie has had the privilege to perform in world class venues, including Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Stephanie lives in Atlanta with her husband Brian and their two neurotic cats.

Gail Jackson
Gail Jackson Gail Jackson, originally a pianist, has been with the Gerogia Philharmonic for the last few years playing oboe. She is a lover of chamber music and is lucky to have a husband who plays bassoon (in Georgia Philharmonic, as a matter of fact). She and her husband regularly play in small ensembles together and like the community aspect of music.

In 2006, he was selected as winner of the Georgia Institute of Technology Concerto Competition, performing Glazunov’s Concerto in E-flat Major for Alto Saxophone and String Orchestra. In 2015, he was selected as winner of the Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition, performing Lebrun’s Concerto No. 2 in G minor for Oboe and Orchestra. In the world of chamber music, Dr. Welch is the founder and oboist of the Titan Winds, an Atlanta-based wind quintet, and has performed with several chamber ensembles in Georgia and Arizona. Away from music, Dr. Welch has a PhD in biomedical engineering and works as an engineering consultant and expert witness in the area of injury biomechanics, analyzing human injury to determine their causes and methods for injury prevention.
