Nigel Armstrong, Violin Soloist

Nigel Armstrong is emerging as a dynamic and creative artist both within and beyond the realm of classical music. From his musical beginnings as a member of "The Little Fiddlers" in Sonoma, CA to collaborations with tango musicians in Argentina (and “grassical” geniuses in the DePue Brothers Band) he's enjoyed using the violin in a versatile manner throughout his life. As soloist he's performed with orchestras such as the Dusseldorf Symphony, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, the St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Youth Orchestra of the Americas, the Pacific Symphony, and the Boston Pops, and with conductors including Sir Neville Marriner, Carlos Miguel Prieto, and Carl St. Clair. As a chamber musician his concerts have taken him across the US and abroad--highlights have included opportunities to share the stage with the Tokyo String Quartet and pianist Jonathan Biss. From 2016 to 2023 he appeared with the Santa Cruz Symphony as their concertmaster and he continues to take on that role with various orchestras throughout the US.

A graduate of the Colburn School and the Curtis Institute of Music, Nigel's teachers have included Arnold Steinhardt, Robert Lipsett, Zaven Melikian, and Donald Weilerstein, among others. He also feels fortunate to have lived with and learned from the Plum Village community founded by monk and author Thich Nhat Hanh, where he spent a formative year working on their organic farm and taking part in their daily life.
