A native of Argentina, Nelly Vuksic earned the title of National Professor of Music from the University of Rosario. After settling permanently in the United States, she completed her education at Ball State University. She is the founder and director of the Americas Vocal Ensemble and for over ten years she has been the music director of the United Nations Singers.
