NATHAN WILSON BALL
Inspired by Christian iconography, Nathan’s compositions place an emphasis on music’s ability to layer and juxtapose multiple signs, or sound worlds. This approach to composition, which was praised by the Boston Globe as “adroit and expressively efficient,” stresses the relationship between concrete musical figures and establishes a purposeful gap in the narrative for the audience to reconcile.
Nathan is in the midst of completing his Doctorate of Musical Arts degree at the Peabody Conservatory of Music, where he studies with Kevin Puts. He has also had the privilege to study with Michael Gandolfi at the New England Conservatory (M.M.), Thomas Oboe Lee at Boston College (B.A.), and Robert Aldridge at the Brevard Music Center.
Originally from Colorado, Nathan now resides in Malvern, PA with his wife and son.
