Described as an “artist of refined taste and musicianship” (The Strad Magazine), and a “superior instrumentalist” (Harris Goldsmith, NY Concert Review), Dubin’s performances take her throughout the US and Europe. As soloist and chamber musician she’s performed recently at BargeMusic, Caramoor, Piccolo Spoleto, Daniel Hope’s Savannah Music Festival Sensations Series, Stephanie Chase’s Music of the Spheres Series, Apple Hill Center for Chamber Music, and other venues throughout the US including concerts with the Garth Newel Piano Quartet and Artaria String Quartet. She performed the world premiere of Divertissement, written for her by Roger Stubblefield, at Lincoln Center, and again at Ars Vitalis NJ. She has performed in Zankel Hall, Chicago’s Symphony Hall, and the Jazz Standard as part of Stefon Harris’s African Tarantella nonet, and on tour with the Core Ensemble trio. Currently the solo cellist of Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour on Broadway, Ms. Dubin has served as Principal Cellist of the Auckland Philharmonia, guest principal cellist of the Swedish Chamber Orchestra, and Principal Cellist of the Charleston Symphony, where her solo concert with the orchestra was lauded as “virtuoso, musical and understated” (Charleston Post and Courier).
Ms. Dubin earned her bachelor’s degree from Columbia, where her broadcast/blogging tendencies about classical string music first appeared in her weekly radio show “Strings Attached,” on WKCR-FM. More recently she earned her doctoral degree from Indiana University, where she where was awarded the Eva Janzer scholarship to study with Janos Starker and two Graduate School grants to fund doctoral research conducted in France. This research has led to several projects, including numerous premiere performances, an article published by Women in French, lectures at NYU, ASU Tempe, University of Connecticut in Storrs, and several other universities, a volume of Franchomme’s compositions compiled and introduced by Ms. Dubin to be published by Dover in 2016, an upcoming publication of cello quartet transcriptions, this fabulous blog, and The Franchomme Project: an album of world premiere recordings released in autumn 2015. The album was chosen by San Francisco’s KDFC‐FM as “CD of the Week,” and Strings Magazine called it a “rare musical treat” that “unfolds with radiant energy.”
In her spare time, she likes to discover funny things and good vegan recipes with her husband, and hike to places where animals, trees and water make all the music. www.louise-dubin.com
