Praised for his “astounding range and virtuosity,” (CD HotList) clarinetist Matthew Nelson maintains an international profile both as a performer and pedagogue. Nelson serves as an associate professor of clarinet at the University of Louisville where he performs with the Louisville Winds’ woodwind quintet and the Grawemeyer Players’ contemporary music ensemble. Prior to his time in Kentucky, Nelson held the position of principal clarinet with the Utah Chamber Orchestra (Ballet West). Nelson’s 2017 solo clarinet CD, Meditations and Tributes, has been lauded as “an unreserved success,” (Fanfare) demonstrating a “staggering command of the instrument.” (textura)  www.matthewphillipnelson.com
