TORONTO Canada – Canadian Jeff Nelsen, Professor of Music (horn) at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, has rejoined the world-renowned Canadian Brass, while continuing his teaching at the Jacobs School.
Born in Alberta, Canada, Nelsen was previously a member of the Toronto-based Canadian Brass from 2000 to 2005 and from 2007 to 2010. He replaces hornist Berhnard Scully.
“Jeff is a formidable presence on and off stage,” said Chuck Daellenbach, founding member of Canadian Brass. “Our audiences will be as thrilled as we are to see and hear him performing with the Brass again. His proven track record as performer, teacher, mentor and motivator are the invaluable assets that make him our logical musical partner; but it is his joie de vivre that makes him a natural choice to help enrich the group’s continued impact on the music world.”
