Christopher Weigel, baritone, is a classical singer, teacher, composer, actor, and contemporary recording artist. Since earning a M.M. from New England Conservatory (NEC) in 2013, following a bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance and Music Education from Ithaca College, Christopher has been a music educator and director in the Greater Boston area. He is now a Choir Director at Stoughton High School. Additionally, he is a cantor at St. Brigid and Gate of Heaven Churches in South Boston, and the Artist in Residence with the Metropolitan Chorale.
While at NEC, Christopher starred in a traveling outreach opera for children in Greater Boston and held a lead role (Anselmo) in the US premiere of Rossini's La Gazzetta. He was also a dueling pianist at the famous Lansdowne Pub at Fenway Park.
After completing his Master’s work at NEC, Christopher has held numerous performance and teaching roles in the Greater Boston area. He has been the Artist-In-Residence for the Metropolitan Chorale since 2014, performing choral and solo work for their shows. Christopher has been a Ringer for the Boston Pops Holiday Tour singing with the Chorale since 2013. He provided vocal percussion for two of those tours, and was the soloist understudy for one season. He was recently featured in 2022 as the Baritone in the Holiday Singers, an octet that performs at Symphony Hall with the Boston Pops for their Holiday Pops Kids’ Matinees.
In 2015, he premiered a recently discovered cantata by Giacomo Carissimi at the University of Hartford under Dr. Susan Mardinly (with grateful permission from Biblioteca of Venice Conservatory of Music Benedetto Marcello.)
Christopher opened for the Pentatonix in 2019 in a quartet with the Olde Towne Carolers at Agganis Arena in Boston.
Most recently, he sang the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium for the New England Patriots in October 2022, as well as for the New England Revolution soccer team this past April. He will continue to regularly sing for these games for the foreseeable future.
His hands on experience in recording studios started at Ithaca College, where he recorded many original songs in the Borg Warner Recording Studio. His studio experience expanded when he helped film score composer Ron Riddle build his Discovery Channel and National Geographic song databases. This inspired him to build his own home studio, where he currently works on new projects.
Besides music, Christopher has found a creative outlet with aerial video production. He is an FAA licensed remote pilot for aerial videography/photography, and has worked with various clients including Wellesley College, the Green Energy Consumer’s Alliance with 42 Degrees North Media, New Day Films, and taught a seminar on drone videography at Emerson College.
When he isn't teaching, performing or recording, he appears as an actor in new TV episodes, commercials and films. More information can be found on his IMDb listing.
