Ambi3 edit
French violinist Ambroise Aubrun, Assistant Professor of Violin at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, has been described as a performer with a “marvelous ease, suppleness and beauty of sound” (A. Busser, Nice-Matin). He is the music director of the Sonnets and Sonatas Lecture Concert series at the Getty Center in Los Angeles, a cultural series combining lectures, readings, musical performances and screenings that explores the relationship between music and literature.

The recipient of numerous awards, (laureate of the Langart Foundation, winner of the Charles Oulmont Prize of the Fondation de France), Dr. Aubrun has performed extensively in Europe and North America in halls such as Salzburg Haus Fuer Mozart, Yerevan Khachaturian Grand Hall, Los Angeles Broad Stage, Zipper Hall and Paris Hotel des Invalides, and has shared the stage with Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Scott St. John, Martin Chalifour, Fred Sherry, Clive Greensmith, Carrie Dennis, Rohan de Saram, the Borroméo and Ebène string quartets among others.

A proponent of contemporary music, Aubrun has premiered over 20 works and has closely worked with composers such as Eric Tanguy, Mark Carlson and Roger Bourland.

Recent highlights include debuts at the Cambrai Festival as the “revelation of the year”, and the release of his first album, “War Romance”, with the Hortus Label to critical acclaim.

Prior to his appointment at UNLV, Aubrun was teaching Violin and Chamber Music at the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music and UC Santa Barbara.


Aubrun graduated at age 19 from the Paris National Superior Conservatory where he studied with Roland Daugareil and Serge Pataud. He then studied at UCLA (D.M.A.) with Guillaume Sutre and at the Colburn Conservatory of Music (Artist Diploma) with Martin Beaver.

Aubrun play a Matteo Goffriller violin, on a generous loan by the Langart Foundation.
