Faculty Artists

Faculty Artists

The Artists of the Wheaton College faculty are a remarkable group of soloists, conductors, chamber musicians, painters, sculptors, photographers, actors, directors and scholars. Each has distinguished themself through significant contributions to campus life, and community musicmaking, but they have also travelled the world performing and teaching, as well as studying local practices associated with their artform. The Artist Series has become increasingly focused on presenting local artists and ensembles from this great American music center of Chicago. They are artists who perform regularly for audiences like ours and the time has now come for our audience to receive and celebrate that treasure which is closest at hand.
