Matthew Peterson

Matthew Peterson (Assistant Music Director, baritone) comes alive when performing with small, intimate chamber choruses, so he is thrilled and immensely grateful to be a part of Gaude. Currently in his sixth season as a member of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Matthew also performs with Cappella SF, Endersnight, and the Chalice Consort.  During the 2014-15 concert season, he appeared as a soloist with the San Francisco Symphony in Beethoven's Missa Solemnis and Choral Fantasy, Stravinsky's Mass, and the Magnificat from Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610.  He has also made solo appearances with Cappella SF, Opera San Jose, the Washington Master Chorale, and the Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra.  Recent appearances include the SF Symphony's February 2016 SoundBox concert and Handel's Alcina (Melisso) with Black Box Baroque.  Matthew studied piano with Hans Boepple and voice with Paul Murray at Santa Clara University.  He has been fortunate to call San Francisco his home for the past five years.
