Nicole Chamberlain is an Atlanta composer and flutist on the rise. Her works have been commissioned and performed by the Atlanta Opera, Georgia Symphony Orchestra, Alias Chamber Ensemble, Winthrop University, and many others.
“My music has been largely influenced by the environment I live in and visit. I would like to give back a little to the environment that has influenced my music, and I feel the Wilderness Act Performance Series is a perfect opportunity to do just that.”
In 2010, Nicole won “Audience Favorite” at the Atlanta Opera’s first 24-Hour Opera Project for her opera “Scrub-A-Dub Raw.” The recognition was awarded with Atlanta Opera’s first commission of a children’s opera, for which Nicole composed “Rabbit Tales.” “Rabbit Tales” has received over 50 performances kick starting her career as a composer. In 2013, Nicole’s “French Quarter” was premiered at the National Flute Association Convention in New Orleans, LA. She also won the 2013 Areon Flutes International Composition Competition.
Nicole received her Bachelors in Music Composition from University of Georgia where she studied with Dr. William Davis, Dr. Leonard Ball, Dr. Lewis Nielson and Dr. Roger Vogel and was selected for masterclasses with Charles Wuorinen and Joan Tower.
