In today's day and age, René Prins is a champion of the woodwinds. He has served as principal oboe and English horn for the Festival of Two Worlds in Spoleto, Italy and was the principal oboist of the Albany Symphony Orchestra for four years prior to his move to Oneonta in 1975. He performs with many chamber music ensembles in upstate New York, serving as oboist, English hornist, recorderist clarinetist and saxophonist. He is principal oboist of the Catskill Symphony Orchestra and the Utica Symphony Orchestra. In the Oneonta community he is well known as conductor of the State College Concert Band, the Oneonta Community Concert Band, and he is the leader/composer for Professor Hillman's Full Band, (a historic instrument ensemble at the Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY). Furthermore, René Prins is an Associate Professor of Music at the State University College of Oneonta, and he also serves on the faculty at Hartwick College. He teaches and researches in the areas of advanced music theory and composition, as well as teaching oboe and conducting. He is the President of Local 443 of the American Federation of Musicians. He is an expert at contract negotiating.
If you aren't in the Oneonta area, you can still hear Mr. Prins play. He has been a part of several commercially released recordings including 'Music for Oboe and Piano' by Bruno Labate on Musical Heritage Society Records, 'New Music for Woodwind Quintet' on Redwood Records and 'The Vocal Oboe' on Centaur Records.
René Prins is among those at the forefront of bringing music to the people of Oneonta. He has been the community's band director since 1981, and as such he has striven to maintain this band's history, since its inception - more than a hundred years ago, of providing free concerts to the public. Mr. Prins also feels that there could be even more free concerts, not only by his band, but by other local musical acts. He is a proactive and inventive force at doing what he can to prevent community brass bands from entering a twilight phase that may mean they may disappear altogether. Budgetary cuts in these and any times are a concern. But as René Prins says, "People here know that you don't have summer without having a concert band."
The scholarly days of René Prins were spent under the tutelage of Lois Wann at the Julliard School in New York City.
