Notes and Editorial Reviews

Acclaimed performances throughout the United States and Europe have established Stephen Caplan as a first-rate oboist and passionate advocate of new music. For over a decade, he has resided in Las Vegas, Nevada where he is recognized as an arts leader, performing music which "discourages the usual image of Las Vegas" (New York Times). Principal oboist with the Las Vegas Philharmonic and Las Vegas Pops, he also plays in orchestras accompanying popular "superstars" on the Las Vegas Strip. A faculty member of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, he is director of the Sierra Winds, a fine wind quintet.
