Nelson grew up in Michigan amidst a family of musicians. His parents are both pianists (his father also conducts) and his twin sisters play the clarinet and cello. Nelson is also married to cellist and fellow ECCO member, Denise Djokic, who hails similarly from a family of musicians. Incidentally, as a clear indication of how intimate the music world is, Nelson and Denise's parents actually went to school together back in the 60's and 70's! Nelson is the first violinist of the Jupiter String Quartet which performs extensively throughout the US and abroad. In recent years, the quartet has won first prize at the Eighth International Banff String Quartet Competition, Young Concert Artists Competition, and Fischoff Chamber Music Competition. The quartet has been a member of Lincoln Center's Chamber Music Society Two program and received the 2008 Avery Fisher Career Grant as well as Chamber Music America's Cleveland Quartet Award in 2007. An active and devoted teacher, Nelson has given masterclasses at numerous institutions and festivals around the country including the Peabody Conservatory, Cleveland Institute of Music, Northwestern University, Boston Conservatory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Aspen Music Festival, Madeline Island Music Camp, and Music at Menlo. He also served as a teaching assistant to Donald Weilerstein while attending the Cleveland Institute of Music. He resides in Boston where he roots tirelessly for the Red Sox and Celtics. Nelson has been a member of ECCO since 2001 and cherishes every opportunity he has to play with this group.
