Jennifer Nubel, composer and church organist, has a bachelor’s degree in choral-general and instrumental music, with piano concentration (Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana), and a master’s degree in music education (University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois). She played a brass instrument called the baritone horn (or euphonium) from middle school through post-college, and believes this gave her a terrific sense of bass line as well as of melody (i.e, the baritone horn, like cello, plays both). In vocal work, Jennifer especially enjoys the ‘magic’ that happens when a soloist, singing along with the accompaniment, brings a solo fully to life.


“…Thanks so much for including me as you bring forth these new solos.  You are getting quite a collection, and all are listenable and singable. ~Ann L., Aurora, Illinois”

“…I can't let the week go by without telling you how much I enjoyed the solo at church last week. Words cannot describe the awe I felt listening. What a wonderful piece of music to set such familiar words to - can't go wrong with Bach, can you? This solo will go on my "Top Ten" list forever!" ~Jane B., Naperville, Illinois”

"… I meant to thank you after the service.  The solo was beautiful (which you arranged) in fact one of my favorites in recent years! Well done!" ~Kim H., Downers Grove, Illinois”
