Irma Kort

Irma Kort is an oboe player who took part in many international tours with ensembles. After finishing her studies, she was hired by the Netherlands Wind Ensemble and Musicians Without Borders to map the needs in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in order to build up the woodwind culture after the war. Since then, she has always had a hybrid practice, performing and teaching. For two decades she was the solo oboe player of the Ballet Orchestra and a member of the Netherlands Wind Ensemble. She teaches at the Royal Conservatoire and at the School for Young Talent. Her interests have shifted in the last period and are moving towards research, education and the artistic leadership of Festival CityProms. An important pillar in her practice is giving students as many opportunities as possible to develop into entrepreneurial and creative musicians.
