For over 30 years Mike Curtis has performed as a professional musician: as a bassoonist with such groups as the Eugene Symphony, the Arrieu Wind Quintet and the Mexico State Symphony, and on other woodwinds with his own Mike Curtis Klezmer Quartet, the duo Oboe Madness, and many jazz groups.
Mike lives in Eugene, Oregon with his wife, oboist Annalisa Morton. He has two boys, young Ian (in photos) and webmaster Morgan (the original impish imp).
Mike began composing at age 40, writing duets to play with his wife in Oboe Madness. Since then he has completed a lot of works for woodwind and string ensembles, published by Schott Music, Billaudot, Trevco Music, and his own MSS Publishing. His best-known work, "A Klezmer Wedding", is heard on at least 24 different CD's.
