A native of New York, Nina chose her career path at an early age. Upon graduating from New York City’s acclaimed High School of Performing Arts, she was accepted to The Juilliard School at age seventeen, where she would spend the next five years honing her craft under the direction of Ranier DeIntinis and James Chambers. Nina has appeared as a soloist with several orchestras throughout her career, including the Juilliard Contemporary Music Ensemble, the National Music Week Orchestra, the Montgomery Symphony Orchestra and the Alabama Symphony Orchestra.
Topping the list of Nina’s favorite things to do when not performing with the ASO, is spending time with her husband and best friend Doug, and their four grown children, now six, with the addition of two amazing daughters-in-law. Nina can often be found gazing out of her kitchen window at the amazing wildlife wandering into the backyard from adjacent, beautiful Oak Mountain State Park. Nina and Doug share an appreciation for all of God’s creation and enjoy spending time together bird watching and enjoying Alabama’s natural resources.
