Lisa Nelsen is internationally recognised for her versatility as a flute soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, educator and mentor in performance practices.  Her performances with Continuum Ensemble’s Swept Away series in London’s King’s Place were wonderfully received, and she was dubbed “...a flautist and a half...” by The Times. She grew up on a pig farm in Western Canada, and fed on all kinds of music, from opera to rock to jazz. She makes many venues her stage, and thrives on sharing the energy that performances can generate. Her flute and harp duo with Eleanor Turner, Aquilae, has performed to packed audiences across the UK. She is a member of The Harborough Collective, a chamber ensemble led by internationally acclaimed violinist David Le Page, and most recently formed Enigma14 with cellist Julian Metzger and pianist Paul Turner. Lisa gives concerts and masterclasses in venues across the UK, Canada, the United States, and Hong Kong.  She is a Professor at the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music in London, teaching flute and coaching wind chamber groups and the orchestral winds and has been the Specialist Flute Tutor at Wells Cathedral School for more than 15 years.  Lisa is extremely proud to be an artist for Yamaha Classical Division International, playing on her 14k 900Series flute.
