Coffee, Patisserie, and Classical Music 2021-22 Series

Coffee Patisserie & Classical Music 

Nina DeCesare, bass
Katherine Needleman, oboe, English horn and piano

Nina DeCesare joined the bass section of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in September 2020 after five years playing with the Oregon Symphony. She has also performed with the Seattle Symphony, the Houston Symphony, the Knights Orchestra, the Sun Valley Music Festival, and the Oregon Bach Festival. Equally comfortable as a orchestral musician, soloist and chamber musician, Nina regularly performs with Third Angle New Music, 45th Parallel and Classical Up Close. Nina is passionate about teaching and mentorship and has presented masterclasses at Peabody Institute, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute, the Pittsburgh Bass Symposium and University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. In the summer, she has appeared as faculty at KC Bass Workshop, the Twin Cities Bass Camp and the Rabbath Institute Los Angeles.

Katherine Needleman is a multi-faceted musician and native of Baltimore. She won first prize in the International Double Reed Society’s Inaugural Commissioning Competition in 2020. She curates Coffee, Patisserie, and Classical Music at An die Musik Live. She explores the connection between composer and performer in this series, focusing on music that has been unreasonably under-programmed for various reasons. She performs as an oboe recitalist throughout the U.S. As a day job, she is an orchestral oboist, having performed as guest principal with all of the U.S.’s “Big Five” orchestras except for one and has been the Baltimore Symphony’s principal oboist since 2003.
