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 and is the section leader of the Utah Wind Symphony. She is the oboist of the Ladies' Quintessential Quintet, and was the oboist of the Salt Lake Pops Studio Orchestra while they were active. With these groups, Nicole has performed in New York City, Chicago, London, Seattle, Michigan, 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 well as all of the self-produced projects with LQQ this season. As a member of the Salt Lake Pops, she had the chance to record an original oboe solo, Electric Winter, composed by Nathaniel Drew that reached viral notoriety as “the dubstep oboist.” Nicole is currently working on a self-produced album of oboe solo works in her home recording studio.
At the University of Utah, Nicole majored in instrumental performance. 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.
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. Local band teachers call her to teach clinics, masterclasses, and run sectionals to help improve their oboe sections
