Nina Laube

Nina Laube is making “her moments on the bassoon a mini-celebration,” according to the Colorado Gazette. She is currently a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and has been inspired by performing with artists across the country.

She has performed with the New York Philharmonic, Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and Colorado Springs Philharmonic and has benefitted from fellowships at the Spoleto Festival, Bowdoin International Music Festival, Colorado College Summer Music Festival, Round Top Festival Institute, Texas Music Festival and Hidden Valley Festival of Winds.

Laube studied with Judith LeClair at the Juilliard School, where she earned her master’s degree and she completed her bachelor’s degree at the Eastman School of Music under George Sakakeeny. At Eastman, she was awarded a performer’s certificate recognizing the outstanding performance of select graduates. In 2019, she was a finalist in the Meg Quigley Vivaldi Competition.

At Juilliard, Laube cherished the opportunity to explore electronic media with the Center for Innovation in the Arts. In May 2021, she premiered an original multimedia artwork on the program “Beyond the Machine: Emerging Artists and Art Forms.” Her work in this discipline addresses climate change by generating music from ecological data.
