DSO member since 2018
Nicholas Myers joined the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in Fall 2018 after a successful audition during his final year of graduate studies at The Juilliard School. Hailing from the small town of Cadillac in Northern Michigan, Nicholas is enthusiastic to be back in his home state as part of the DSO.
Nicholas enrolled at Interlochen Arts Academy in 2010 for his junior and senior years of high school, graduating with High Honors and a Fine Art Award. He completed his undergraduate studies at New England Conservatory under the tutelage of Lawrence Wolfe and Todd Seeber. At Juilliard, Nicholas studied with Hal Robinson and Rex Surany and is a proud recipient of a Kovner Fellowship. He credits his public school sixth-grade music program as fundamental to his exposure to instrumental music.
While at New England Conservatory, Nicholas performed frequently with the Boston Philharmonic and in recording sessions for video games and music videos. He has performed as a substitute with the Santa Barbara Symphony and the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra while in graduate school. Summer engagements have included two summers each at the Pacific Music Festival, Music Academy of the West, and most recently the Tanglewood Music Center, as well as experiences at the National Symphony Orchestra Summer Music Institute and the Spoleto Festival USA.
Nicholas performs on an 1836 Abraham Prescott (Concord, NH) double bass and a bow by H.R Pfretzschner.
