Charles-David ‘Chick’ Lehrer (b. 1940) is an oboist and music historian. He was educated at the University of Michigan(DMA 1968) and UCLA (Ph.D 1990) specializing in the history of the Concerto. He spent most his teaching years at UMass, Amherst and at California State University at Northridge. Chick made his Carnegie Recital Hall debut in 1980 followed by three recordings on Orion. Chick’s teachers included several of Marcel Tabuteau’s brightest students: John de Lancie, Louis Rosenblatt, Alfred Genovese and Ralph Gomberg. His published works, primarily for the International Double Reed Society, are numerous. The website Marcel Tabuteau First-Hand, created in conjunction with Marc Mostovoy, Nancy Lehrer (Chick’s wife), Michael Finkelman, Laila Storch and David Weber, represents in large part, the culmination of his life-long work.
