NICK OBER is principal bassoon of the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra in Bozeman, MT. Nick’s aspiration is to be as versatile of a bassoonist as possible. Although primarily experienced as a symphonic player, he has also performed in Opera pits, chamber groups, theatre and musical productions, and new music ensembles. Nick has played in many orchestras in the upper midwest, including the Minnesota Orchesta, Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra Iowa, and the Chippewa Valley Symphony. While obtaining his Master’s in bassoon at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, he helped launch the project Apres L’Histoire, a new music ensemble that performs and commissions works for the same ensemble used in Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat. He has also performed with numerous community ensembles in Chicagoland and the Twin Cities.
