About Janet Popesco Archibald

Janet Popesco Archibald holds the position of Solo English Horn with the San Francisco Opera Orchestra.

A San Francisco native, she attended the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music and received her Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Her principal oboe instructors were Marc Lifschey and Adrian Gnam. Janet has participated in the Aspen, Tanglewood, and Elkhorn at Sun Valley, Idaho music festivals. As a fellowship participant at Yale University's Yale at Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, she was hailed by the New York Times as a “particularly impressive” young artist.

Janet has appeared as a soloist on both the oboe and English Horn with the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, where she was Co-Principal Oboe for many years, and she has soloed on the English Horn with the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra. She served as Principal Oboe of San Francisco Opera's touring affiliate, the Western Opera Theater Orchestra, for five national tours. For 12 summers she served as Principal Oboe of the Lake Tahoe Summer Music Festival Orchestra, and for 22 years she was a member of the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory's Preparatory/Adult Extension department. She has also been a member of the music faculty at both San Francisco State University and the University of California at Santa Cruz.

Janet's recording credits include the film soundtracks for Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Ricochet, the TV series, The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles and the Grammy nominated CD of Gluck's Orphee & Eurydice with the San Francisco Opera.

When not chained to her reed making desk, Janet likes to run & enjoys the outdoors. Her chamber group, the Lowell Ensemble, featuring musicians from the SF Opera Orchestra & other Bay Area orchestras, performs regularly throughout the San Francisco Bay Area in venues ranging from concert halls to music clubs.
