George A. Pavelis


George was introduced to the oboe in sixth grade, when the U.S. Army Band woodwind quintet visited his elementary school in Falls Church, VA. His first teacher was Donald Hiltz, a member
of the U.S. Air Force Band in Washington, D.C. He then went on to study with
Louis Rosenblatt of the Philadelphia Orchestra and Rudolph Vrbsky of the National Symphony Orchestra.

George has performed with the Arlington Symphony, Washington Opera Orchestra, Washington Bach Chorale, and National Symphony Orchestra. Locally, George has performed with the Richmond Choral Society, Richmond Pops Band, James River Singers, and Williamsburg Choral Guild, among other groups. 

George's other passion is chemistry, a subject which he has taught for over 30 years in local high schools.
