Matthew Whitfield

Matthew is Organist & Director of Music at St. Thomas’s Anglican Church in Toronto. He 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 both National and Regional organ competitions.

As a conductor, Matthew has led performances of numerous large-scale choral and instrumental works, including the York University production of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and J.S. Bach’s Musical Offering. Having studied both choral and orchestral conducting, Matthew has a well-developed technique that he uses to explore ensemble works, particularly from the Baroque era.

In addition to his roles as organist and conductor, Matthew is the Early Music columnist for The WholeNote magazine. For more information on Matthew’s upcoming concerts and events, visit his website: www.orguenouveau.com.
