Steven Caldicott Wilson


Tenor Steven Caldicott Wilson has been praised for his "limpid tenor, marked by wondrous phrasing and aching lyricism in Thy rebuke hath broken his heart" (Chicago Classical Review, Messiah, December 2022) and his “powerful, polished and moving Evangelist" (New York Times, CPE Bach Matthew Passion, 2011). He will be the tenor soloist for the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra (Pasquerilla Performing Arts Center) and Musica Sacra (Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage, Carnegie Hall) Messiah performances in December 2023. He returns for his 8th season with H+H in the 23-24 season, including soloist in Israel in Egypt.

Noteworthy engagements include the Stavanger (Norway) Kammermusikkfestival in 2018 and 2023; Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston; Taipei International Choral Festival; Heidelberger (Germany) Frühling; Wigmore and Cadogan Halls, London; Concertgebouw, Amsterdam; Tage Alter Musik Regensburg (Germany); Festival Internacional de Música Abvlensis (Spain); Cartagena Festival International de Música (Colombia); and Early Music Vancouver.
