Duo Novae has performed recitals in France, Italy and throughout the United States. In May 2022, they returned to Europe to make their debuts at the Sibelius International Festival in Sestri Levante, Italy, and in Mouans Sartoux, France.
In addition to being full-time faculty members at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, both artists are frequent international soloists, chamber musicians, and clinicians. Ms. Hamilton is a regular substitute with the Berlin Philharmonic, and Dr. Aubrun performs regularly with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Their recital, and chamber music performances, along with their CDs, have been broadcast on CBS, France Musique, K-USC Los Angeles, Minnesota Public Radio, KBS, WFMT, Klara Radio (Belgium), KPFK (CA) and KNCJ (Reno).
Ambroise Aubrun, D.M.A., Artistic Director
The festival was founded in 1988 by Professor Henry J. Bruman (1913–2005), who sought to introduce new audiences to chamber music at informal concerts on the UCLA campus. The festival is made possible by the Henry J. Bruman Trust, Professors Wendell E. Jeffrey and Bernice M. Wenzel, by a gift in memory of Raymond E. Johnson, and with the support of the UCLA Center for 17th-& 18th-Century Studies.
As of Friday, May 27, 2022, universal indoor masking has resumed at UCLA due to a rise in COVID-19 cases. Upgraded, well-fitting masks are required to be worn indoors by all, regardless of vaccination status.
