Organist & Choir Director
Considered ‘one of Canada’s most gifted musicians’ (Saugeen Times), Matthew received his musical training from York University, where he earned his BFA studying with Stephanie Martin, and the University of Toronto, where he received his MMus and worked with John Tuttle. While at the University of Toronto, Matthew performed in masterclasses with Canadian organists Ken Cowan and Isabelle Demers and won prizes in several National and Regional organ competitions.
As a conductor and harpsichordist, Matthew has given performances of numerous choral and vocal works, including the York University production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. Having studied choral
conducting with Lisette Canton and orchestral conducting with Mark Chambers, Matthew has a well-developed technique that he uses to explore ensemble works, particularly from the Baroque and Modern eras.
