Born in Frankfurt, Germany, she started playing the flute at the age of twelve and joined the Frankfurt Brass Philharmonic Orchestra. She discovered the saxophone five years later and fell under the charm of jazz. Equally fascinated by contemporary history, she studied this subject at the University of Freiburg. After moving to Lyon in 2010, she entered the Conservatory of Lyon in order to study jazz and composition. Nora quickly became one of the most in-demand saxophonists in the region, completing her Master’s degree in contemporary history at the University of Lyon the following year.
In 2018 she moved to Paris, where she is currently preparing the release of her new album.
