Niccolo Seligmann goes giddy for opportunities to play obscure folk instruments he's never seen before. He improvises, composes, produces, and teaches, uniting historical and experimental music. He plays over twenty acoustic instruments and builds his own software instruments. You can hear him perform on viola da gamba, medieval fiddle, and more on the soundtracks of the PC game Civilization VI and the 2017 feature film Papillon. Niccolo is a member of ensembles Alkemie, The Broken Consort, Concordian Dawn, Eya, Hesperus, Wherligig, and Jefferson Baroque. He performs across North America and Europe, notably at the Kennedy Center, in a bustling plaza in Nogales, Mexico, and inside a 2000-year-old Northern Californian redwood tree. Niccolo coached the UCLA Early Music Ensemble from 2016-2018, and maintains a bicoastal private teaching studio. He holds a degree in viola da gamba performance from the Peabody Conservatory. He is apprenticed to master luthier Ken Koons.
