He has been featured in orchestral works by Lindberg, Stravinsky, Ives, Milhaud, Carter and R. Strauss among others and regularly appears in chamber music performances with musicians from the Philharmonic at New York City's Merkin Hall and elsewhere. In March 2016, he was featured in recital as part of the New York Philharmonic's "Messiaen Week" - a series of concerts featuring the work of the late French composer. Huebner has collaborated with the conductor David Robertson in performances of György Ligeti’s Piano Concerto, Olivier Messiaen’s Oiseaux Exotiques and on the American premiere with percussionist Colin Currie of Elliott Carter's Two Controversies and a Conversation for piano, percussion and chamber ensemble. Recent solo recitals have featured the piano études of the late Hungarian composer György Ligeti and include appearances on the St. Louis Symphony's Pulitzer Arts Foundation Gallery series, at Bowling Green State University and the University of Michigan. From 2001 through 2012, Huebner was a member of Antares, a quartet comprised of clarinet, violin, cello and piano. First prize winners of the 2002 Concert Artists Guild International Competition, Antares appeared regularly in major chamber music venues throughout the United States and worked closely with many composers on the commissioning of new works for its combination.
