Cellist Nancy Baun is a critically acclaimed soloist, having performed with over a dozen orchestras in her home state of Pennsylvania. A student of Orlando Cole, she has since studied chamber music with Menahem Pressler and Timothy Eddy, and appeared in master classes for Lynn Harrell and Nadja Salerno Sonnenberg, as a fellow at the Aspen Music Festival.
A seasoned chamber musician, she has performed over 1,000 events throughout the United States, Europe, and Canada, including three concerts at Carnegie’s Weill Recital Hall. She appears on nine recordings, including a Grammy nominated series on Naxos International.
As an educator, Baun has served on college faculties, taught elementary music, and presented a broad roster of community education events at conferences, art galleries, and science museums.
In Buffalo, she performs with the Western New York Chamber Orchestra, the Roycroft Chamber Music Festival, and Young Audiences of Western New York, for which her education series combining music and art has received a national grant. She summers as guest faculty at festivals in Pennsylvania, New York, and Vermont, and is a founding member of the Ravel Trio, based in Baltimore. She lives with her husband, saxophonist Steve Rosenthal and their hockey goalie son, Max.
