Spirited Conversations with Jonathan Easter
Join us Monday, April 19 at 12 pm EST for our third broadcast of Spirited Conversations: Behind the Scores. Eavesdrop on Atlanta Master Chorale Artistic Director Eric Nelson and collaborative organist/pianist Jonathan Easter as they discuss the intricacies of the relationship between conductor and accompanist.

Known for his musicality and expressivity across multiple instruments, Jonathan Easter is increasingly sought after as a collaborative organist and pianist. As a collaborative artist, Easter has performed at ACDA and AGO conventions at the Regional and National levels. He also performs regularly with the Atlanta Master Chorale and Emory University’s Concert Choir as their Accompanist and Assistant Conductor. As an organist, Easter performs solo and collaborative recitals. He can be heard on multiple CDs with the Atlanta Master Chorale, University of North Florida Chamber Singers, and an upcoming cd with trumpet-players from around the country.

In addition to his work with choral ensembles, he has worked on multiple occasions with solo artists including world-famous mezzo-soprano, Jamie Barton. Particularly notable was a collaborative recital to help Barton prepare for her win at the 2013 Cardiff Singer of the World Competition.

Easter currently serves as Director of Fine Arts and Organist at Saint Mark United Methodist Church in Atlanta.

This will be a live virtual interview, and guests will have an opportunity for Q&A following the session. The event is free to attend, but we are accepting donations to cover the costs of our Virtual Concert Hall programming (suggested $10). Your gift helps ensure that we can continue sharing music that touches the spirit.

Apr 19, 2021 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Eric Nelson
Artistic Director @Atlanta Master Chorale
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.
