Originally from Rochester, New York, Jeff Wilson has a strong connection and tie to Western New York State. Now located in the New York City area, Jeff is embracing opportunities not only as an educator, but as a singer and songwriter, as well as branching out into the world of choral and orchestral composition.
Jeff's musical capabilities are diverse and advanced. He is a trained vocalist experienced in musical theater, opera, oratorio and choral singing; a pianist with very strong sight-reading and improvisational skills, both as a soloist and accompanist; a collaborative conductor of school and church choirs, as well as musical theater productions; and a composer of solo vocal, choral, orchestral, piano and musical theater pieces. An example of the latter is a two act musical that he composed entitled “Immortally Yours” which was produced in workshop in Rochester, New York.
Jeff is a self-motivated, driven, and passionate individual. Although his college degree program at Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York focused on vocal music education, for over twenty years Jeff has immersed himself in the musical theater world as both a performer and director. This has developed his versatility, giving him background and expertise in all aspects of putting on quality productions, including working successfully with people of all ages and dispositions.
Currently, Jeff is serving as the Director of Music at First Congregational Church of Park Ridge, as well as Music Director for the Lakeside Choraliers in Montvale. You can see examples of Jeff's work on his website, www.jeffwilsonmusician.com
