Allison Edberg Nyquist’s violin playing has been described by The Chicago Sun Times as “impeccable, with unerring intonation and an austere beauty.” She is concertmaster of the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra and a member of Ensemble Voltaire, The Vivaldi Project, and Baroque Band (Chicago). She performs frequently with Chatham Baroque and at the Indianapolis Early Music Festival. Her discography includes recordings for the Eclectra, Delos, and Centaur CD labels. Nyquist has served on the faculties of Indiana State University, DePauw University, Ohio State, the Interlochen Arts Camp, and Lawrence University. A Tennessee native, she is often headed south as the newly appointed Artistic Director of Music City Baroque, Nashville’s baroque orchestra, and adjunct professor of baroque violin at Vanderbilt’s Blair School of Music.
