Stuart Breczinski is a New York-based oboist, improviser, composer, and educator whose early interest in making unusual sounds on the oboe has developed into a passion for creating and sharing innovative audio with audiences of all backgrounds. A proponent of chamber and contemporary music, Breczinski is a member of the City of Tomorrow, a traveling woodwind quintet dedicated to the promotion and performance of contemporary works. He performs regularly as a chamber musician with NOVUS NY and the Talea Ensemble, and he has also performed with Bang on a Can, Contemporaneous, the International Contemporary Ensemble, the New York New Music Ensemble, and Signal. He received an honorable mention at the 2015 IDRS Gillet-Fox International Competition, and from 2012-2014 he was the oboist with Ensemble ACJW (now Ensemble Connect), a program of Carnegie Hall, the Juilliard School, and the Weill Music Institute in partnership with the New York City Department of Education.

Breczinski holds degrees from The Hartt School (MM) and The University of Iowa (BM, BSE), with additional study at Manhattan School of Music. His principal instructors have included Jacqueline Leclair, Humbert Lucarelli, and Mark Weiger.
