Rachel AuBuchon devotes much of her time to collaborating with instrumentalists and vocalists, finding an unusual balance between lieder and saxophone literature. Recent performance venues have included the 2014 North American Saxophone Conference and the 2011 Navy Symposium with Trio Chymera, and the 2012 World Saxophone Congress with Leo Saguiguit. An avid supporter of new music, Ms. AuBuchon participated in the International Composers Festival in Columbia Missouri (2012, 2013) under the direction of Stefan Freund. Her love of vocal literature led her to participate in the CoOPERAtive program in Princeton, New Jersey (2013) and serve as a staff accompanist for the national NATS conference in 2015 and 2016. Recent engagements have included a NATS internship under master teacher Warren Jones, two summers as staff accompanist for GLOS (Greensboro Light Opera and Song), and three years of staff accompanist for choral rehearsals of Greensboro Opera.
Ms. AuBuchon graduated with a BM in piano performance from Truman State University and an MM in accompanying at the University of Missouri. She served on the faculty of Stephens College from 2006-2011 and on the accompanying staff of University of Missouri from 2006-2014. She is currently pursuing her DMA at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro as she joins the staff at Truman State University.
