2023 Festival Fellows

University of Maryland
Home town: Decatur, GA

Nathaniel Wolff strives to use music as a tool to create meaningful human connections and promote a deeper understanding of the world. He currently holds the oboe graduate woodwind quintet fellowship at University of Maryland School of Music where the quintet, IGNIS, is dedicated to bold performances and meaningful community engagement. Nathaniel loves promoting contemporary music. He has closely collaborated with and premiered works by composers such as Adrian Wong, William Kenlon, Ancel Neely and Pauline Ng, and has performed at the 2018 Midwest Composer's Symposium. Equally comfortable operating in more traditional spaces, Nathaniel has performed at summer festivals including the NSO Summer Music Institute, Brevard Music Center and the Maine Chamber Music Seminar, where his quintet served as ensemble in residence. He is forever indebted to his teachers, especially Mark Hill, Nancy Ambrose King, Elizabeth Koch Tiscione and Kim Lorch. When he's not making reeds, you can find Nathaniel perusing Washington D.C. museums or watching Formula One.
