Christopher Wilson began his course of musical study attending the Pinellas County Center for the Arts magnet center at Gibbs High School, in Saint Petersburg, Florida. While earning his B.M. in Music History and Literature (1994) at Florida State University, Mr. Wilson specialized in Renaissance and Baroque performance practices, becoming the first undergraduate to earn the prestigious Certificate in Early Music Performance. Mr. Wilson attended Case Western Reserve University in pursuit of a Master of Arts in Historical Musicology, where he also studied recorder under Adam Gilbert (of the Renaissance wind ensembles, Piffaro and Ciaramella). In Spring of 1996, while studying Baroque Dance under Julie Andrijeski (Chatham Baroque), Mr. Wilson discovered a love and talent for the art form. After being featured in a dance duet in the Case Western Reserve University Music Department's staged production of Handel's opera, Il pastor fido, Mr. Wilson performed with Ms. Andrijeski at the Cleveland Museum of Art. Continuing his dance instruction, Mr. Wilson attended the Stanford Baroque Dance Workshop, studying under Paige Whitley-Baugess and Thomas Baird, of Apollo's Banquet, as well as meeting and discussing the art form with Wendy Hilton (Dance of Court and Theater: The French Noble Style, 1690-1725, Princeton Book Company Publishers, 1981). Mr. Wilson co-directs the Atlanta Baroque Dance Company with Kat Peng, teaching and performing Baroque Court Dances and Country Dances.
