MEET OUR ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

Dr. Eric Nelson has served as artistic director of the Atlanta Master Chorale since 1999. He brings extensive training in voice and choral conducting from Houghton College, Westminster Choir College and Indiana University along with experience conducting choirs and clinics around the world. Dr. Nelson constantly finds effective ways to help celebrate the gift of singing – as he says – “shoulder to shoulder, voice to voice, one voice lost in another, each agreeing upon something beyond themselves.” Dr. Nelson is currently Director of Choral Studies at Emory University, where he is a recent recipient of the distinguished Arts and Humanities Crystal Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching.

Jim has also worked as the Grant Manager for both the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Georgia and Lutheran Services of Georgia. Jim is excited to join us and utilize his talents and skills to steer Atlanta Master Chorale to even greater heights as a nationally-recognized choral ensemble.
