Long-time Artist Series audiences are already familiar with John Nelson from his past work. Born in Costa Rica of American parents, John Nelson studied at Wheaton College and with Morel at the Juilliard School of Music in New York. Internationally renowned for his interpretation of the large romantic repertoire, including the great works of Berlioz, John has conducted most of the world's top orchestras including the London Symphony, Orchestre de Paris, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Chicago Symphony, the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras and the New York Philharmonic. His varied repertoire has also taken him to many of the world's major opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, the Chicago Lyric, the Opera Bastille and the Netherlands Opera.

John will be conducting the combined ensembles of the Wheaton College Conservatory of Music along with guest soloists for this signature event.
