As a freelance oboist, Nicole Marriott Fullmer has had the privilege of participating in a wide variety of ensembles and projects. Described as having "a beautiful, free-flowing sound" by Holly Gornik (retired Utah Symphony), she has performed with the Utah Symphony, Ballet West, recorded on the soundtrack for TNT's season one of "The Librarians," and participated in the Imani Winds Chamber Music Festival in New York City with her trio, Trio de Bois (a French-style woodwind trio). She performs with Chrome Street quartet and is the section leader of the Utah Wind Symphony. She is part of starting a new ensemble called Elacor, and was the oboist of the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra and SaltAir Winds woodwind quintet while they were active. With these groups, Nicole has performed in New York City, Chicago, Salt Lake City, Park City and other various locations around Utah. She also performed solo and as part of a trio in recital in Alpine, Texas.
Nicole has done a variety of recording, which includes soloing with a choir, recording for soundtracks, and recording for a rock album. As a member of the Salt Lake Pops, she had the chance to record an original oboe solo, Electric Winter, composed by Nathaniel Drew. With the Utah Wind Symphony, Nicole performed at the Midwest Music Conference in Chicago in December of 2015.
At the University of Utah, Nicole majored in instrumental performance and held the principal oboe position in both the University of Utah Wind Ensemble and Philharmonia. She studied privately with Bob Stephenson, principal oboist of the Utah Symphony, and with Holly Gornik, who recently retired from the English horn position with the Utah Symphony. She also played in a number of chamber ensembles, performed solo for choral department concerts, and played percussion briefly in the Ute Marching Band and Percussion Ensemble.
Nicole has a variety of chamber music collaborations planned for the near future, and she is currently auditioning for professional symphonies. She also has a private oboe studio that incorporates group lessons and recitals, during which she performs as well as accompanies her students on piano. Nicole is a member of Legacy Music Alliance, and local band teachers call her to teach clinics, masterclasses, and run sectionals to help improve their oboe sections. She is always arranging music for Chrome Street, and is currently working on her own home-recording projects.
