Phil Wilcox


Phil Wilcox is a portfolio career artist,

a uniquely versatile musician who enjoys

the many opportunities of a

diverse musical life.

In his burgeoning career as an opera singer, Phil is often praised by directors for the quality of his singing, the detail in his acting

and the energy of his comedic timing.

He is regularly engaged as a concert soloist,

and his experience and advanced musicianship

make him an asset to recording sessions,

research & development projects,

ensemble leadership

and animateurship.

“Phil Wilcox’ Major General gave us a good humoured old cove with the lightning articulation in the patter song worthy of the best of Rossini

Lark Reviews, 2019


I have over a decade of teaching experience and in that time I have worked with people of all ages and abilities to help them find a joy for singing and a freerer, more communicative sound.

Choral direction

I currently direct the wonderful Fleet Singers, a community choir based in Gospel Oak, and several choirs for Music in Offices.

I have previously founded and directed choirs for Leeds Beckett University and Ravensbourne College, Greenwich.

Workshop leading

I hugely enjoy working with singing groups of all ages and sizes!

Whether I'm working with an adult choir, a school group, a team building cohort or a bunch of people who had no idea they'd be singing; the name of the game is enjoyment and singing your heart out!

Leeds Lieder

I am very proud to be the Learning and Participation Manager for Leeds Lieder.

Our work in schools and the wider community encourages people to engage with Art Song as a relevant and exciting genre, full of characters and stories!

Phil is a Licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music.
