Edward Wilson

Edward Wilson II began learning piano at the age of six from his mother and continued with Mrs. Sharon Maurer, organist of Carlisle First United Church of Christ.  A 2013 graduate of West Chester University, Edward majored in piano and was a member of the university’s premier choral group, Concert Choir.  He has had the opportunity to study with several excellent vocalists, pianists, and conductors including Dr. Vincent Craig and Dr. David DeVenney.   He earned his Masters in Choral Conducting in 2020 from Messiah University, having studied under Dr. Rachel Cornacchio. 

Edward is happily employed at Big Spring High School, leading the high school choral program and teaching a variety of music electives. He greatly enjoys spending time with his wife Kirsten, and their new daughter, Ainslee.

Having come to hear Cantate Carlisle for as long as he can remember, Edward is beyond thrilled to help continue its fruitful legacy.  He would like to thank Michelle and the members of the board for this wonderful opportunity as well as Cheryl Parsons and Art Thompson for being such excellent role models.
