Matthew Wilson

Biography for Matthew Wilson, Tenor

Matthew Wilson was born in Whakatane, Bay of Plenty, and started his musical education at the age of five with piano lessons. Whilst attending Palmerston North Boys’ High School he developed a love of choral singing and joined the OK Chorale under the direction of Graeme Young.

Matthew started singing lessons at the age of 16, which gave him the confidence to audition for the Performance Voice programme at the University of Otago.

During 2012 he was a member of both the National Youth Choir of New Zealand and the National Youth Choir of Great Britain in London, sang the role of Don Curzio in Opera Otago’s production of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, and the role of The Defendant in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury for The Really Authentic Gilbert and Sullivan Performance Trust. Matthew will complete his Bachelor of Music at the end of 2012, and plans to study Speech and Language Therapy in Auckland or Christchurch the following year.
