About Colin Maier

Canada’s Colin Maier is a theatrical performance oboist who sees his oboe and music as part of a larger performance. He currently plays with the Canadian group “Quartetto Gelato” which tours the globe with its theatrical take on the classical genre. For more info on Quartetto Gelato click here.
Backed by a brilliantly versatile rhythm section, Colin’s solo project entitled ”Colin Maier and the Misguided Band” features fun, theatrical and original music. Completely unlike anything heard on the oboe before. For more info on The Misguided Band click here.
