Philip is a born and bred Wellingtonian, he studied at Tawa College and is now finishing a degree in Software Engineering. Philip has been well involved with choirs since his time at high school. While he was at Tawa College, he was in the school’s all-comers choir Dawn Chorus, as well as the auditioned choir Blue Notes. It was here that he fell in love with choral music.
Since then, Philip has been involved with the New Zealand Secondary Students’ Choir, the Orpheus Choir of Wellington, and has sung as a tenor in Wellington Youth Choir since 2017. He is excited to be furthering his musical journey as music director in 2020, and is looking forward to a fun year of choral music!
