Musical Leadership

Todd Wilson - Artistic Director


Todd Wilson has guided Nashville Singers from the beginning with his vision for attaining the highest standards of choral excellence on and off the stage. His enthusiasm for the impact of choral music on the lives of both singers and listeners is evident at any rehearsal or public performance, as well as through the music itself. Todd’s experience as a singer started at age six. He has provided musical leadership to six different mixed, male or female choral ensembles in Florida, Texas, Illinois, and Tennessee. Todd has earned six International Chorus Championships with the internationally-acclaimed Vocal Majority Chorus, and an International Quartet Championship with ACOUSTIX. That foursome has produced six CD projects since 1991 and has appeared on another 22 audio and video releases to date. Wilson got his college education from the University of North Texas, Strayer University, and Palm Beach Community College. Todd works for Amazon at their fulfillment center in Lebanon, Tennessee. In 2000, he was inducted into the "Hall of Fame" of the Southwestern District of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Wilson's past and present affiliations include the American Society of Association Executives, National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences, American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers, Tennesseans for the Arts, Gospel Music Association, Chorus America, National Society of Collegiate Scholars, Barbershop Harmony Society, Association of International Champions, Center for Nonprofit Management, and Contemporary A Cappella Society of America. He and his wife Jennifer have been married since 1989, and have two sons, Taylor, and Travis. Todd received the Nashville Singers Member of the Year Award for 2009.
