Each a model of the 21st-century musician, Curtis guitar faculty Jason Vieaux and violin alumnus Nigel Armstrong are musical chameleons and kindred spirits who navigate a seamless tapestry of sound influenced by classical, jazz, bluegrass, rock, Latin, folk, and whatever else inspires them—all with consummate artistry and technical mastery. Perhaps most appealing is their genuine sense of joy in the exploration of music and their passion for sharing it with audiences.
