Keri-Lynn Wilson

Conductor

Biography

Keri-Lynn Wilson is the founder and music director of the highly regarded Ukrainian Freedom Orchestra — formed in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine — which over the past two summers has toured major cities and festivals in Europe and the United States. As a staunch supporter of Ukrainian liberty, Wilson also performed the Verdi Requiem at the Lviv Opera House to commemorate the one-year anniversary of the invasion. She has returned to that country to conduct Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with a new version of the Ode to Joy in Ukrainian that she created in which Schiller’s Freude (Joy) is changed to Slava (Glory), the rallying cry for Ukrainian victory. 

Wilson’s career as a conductor of opera and symphonic music includes appearances at many of the world’s leading opera houses and symphony orchestras. Among the companies she has conducted most recently are the Royal Opera, Covent Garden, and The Metropolitan Opera, Paris Opéra, and Deutsche Opera Berlin. Orchestras she has most recently led include Tokyo’s NHK Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Bruckner Orchestra of Linz.

Over a rich and varied career, Wilson has conducted, among many other orchestras, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, Filarmonica Arturo Toscanini in Parma, Russian National Orchestra, Prague Philharmonia, RAI Symphony Orchestra, Salzburg Mozarteum, Ravinia Festival Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestre symphonique de Montréal.
