Dash Nesbitt

Viola

Dashiel Nesbitt, originally from Tulsa, Oklahoma, resides in Stockholm, where he has been a member of
the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2017. Before moving to Sweden he was very active in the
German orchestral world, working with the West German Radio Symphony Orchestra, Gürzenich
Orchestra Cologne, Staatskapelle Berlin, and Staatskapelle Dresden among others. As a chamber
musician, Dash has performed concerts in the USA, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark, Sweden and
Great Britain. Dash earned a Bachelor of Music and Performance Diploma from Indiana University as
a student of Atar Arad, and a Master of Music from Yale University where he studied with Ettore Causa.
After formal studies, Dash began a close mentorship with the Principal Violist of the Staatskapelle Berlin,
Felix Schwartz. Of all the places music has taken him, the vibrant, unique culture of New Orleans at the
Birdfoot Festival remains one of his very favorites.
