Steven Wilson, tenor

Praised by The New York Times in December 2011 for his “lithe, shapely tenor [which] gave his arias a sense of authority” in Handel’s Messiah, and in April 2011 for his “powerful, polished and moving Evangelist” in C.P.E. Bach’s Matthew Passion, tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson enjoys a successful career as both an oratorio soloist and professional small ensemble member domestically and internationally.

Mr. Wilson made his Carnegie Hall debut in December 2010 singing Messiah solos with The Masterwork Chorus. Highlights of 2011 included the New York premiere of Songs for Eve, an hour-long song cycle for vocal and string quartets by Alice Parker; the title role in Clarion Music Society’s production of Judas Maccabeus (which was then recorded for commercial release); arias and ensemble parts in an 8-singer performance of Bach’s St. John Passion (of 1725) with Chatham Baroque, Pittsburgh; and solos in performances of Messiah at Saint Thomas Church New York City.

During the summer 2009-2011 seasons, Steven was a member of the professional Carmel Bach Festival Chorale. In October 2011, he joined the classical male vocal quartet New York Polyphony. 2012 will see him performing with New York Polyphony in Saint-Lô, France and Fairbanks, Alaska as well as singing solo engagements in Pittsburgh and Nashua, New Hampshire. A 2001-05 enlisted member of the United States Air Force Band Singing Sergeants, Steven is a graduate of Ithaca College and the Yale University Voice Masters program in early music. www.scwtenor.com
