Tenor Alexander Wilson grew up in Auckland, New Zealand. He graduated from the University of Otago with a Bachelor of Sciences majoring in Geology and a Bachelor of Music in Classical Performance Voice under the direction of Judy Bellingham. Alex has had success in a variety of competitions throughout New Zealand. Last year, he placed third in the Lexus Song Quest, and was the winner of the Otago Daily Times Aria competition. Alex moved to Perth, Western Australia to work as a geologist and later relocated to Cardiff, Wales to pursue a Masters in Advanced Vocal Studies under the direction of tenor Dennis O’Neill. Alex gratefully acknowledges the support that he has received from the Kia Ora Foundation. Without it, his study at the Welsh International Academy of Voice would not have been possible.
