He performs frequently throughout Canada and the U.S. on modern and historical instruments. He has performed with the Oregon Bach Festival Orchestra, the Boston Philharmonic and as a soloist both in the U.S. and in Switzerland.
A native of Eugene, Oregon, Nate holds degrees from the University of Oregon and the New England Conservatory of Music and is a recent graduate of the Historical Performance program at the Juilliard School.
In May 2018, Nate Helgeson joined Special Travel International’s first cruise on the Elbe from Prague through Berlin, travelling through the heartland of J.S. Bach, and in the crucible of early music in central Europe. Together with Alexander Weimann and Chloe Meyers, Nate Helgeson performed music from Bohemia, the legendary court chapel in Dresden, the land of Martin Luther, and from the world of Bach, Telemann and Handel. We look forward to his next tour with STI!
