More About the Performer

Eugene Gaub is Professor of Music (Senior Faculty Status) at Grinnell College, where he taught music theory and courses in music history focused on opera, as well as piano, from 1995 to 2022. Along with his wife, violinist-composer Nancy McFarland Gaub, he founded and directed the Roycroft Chamber Music Festival in East Aurora, New York from 1994 to 2016. A graduate of the Juilliard School, he holds a doctorate and performer’s certificate from the Eastman School of Music.

His New York debut took place at age 22 at Lincoln Center in a performance of Bartók’s First Piano Concerto with the Juilliard Orchestra. Other notable performances include recitals at New York’s Weill Recital Hall and at Washington’s Kennedy Center and National Gallery of Art. His performance of Mozart’s Concerto in G Major, KV 453 with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra was named one of the year’s best by the Buffalo News. During the Covid lockdown, he learned the Prokofiev Third Piano Concerto, which he performed for the first time in 2022 with the Grinnell Symphony.

While living in Fairfield from 2002 to 2022, Gene sang with the Chamber Singers of Southeast Iowa for most of that time. He now lives in Boulder, Colorado.
