SFC Matthew P. Heil found his love of music when his parents gifted him a

"Mr. Microphone" and that's where it all went down hill. Just Kidding!

Heil loved to sing in the childrenʼs choir and everywhere from an early age. He

continued studying voice but also excelled on the piano, clarinet, bass clarinet, and

tenor saxophone.

Heil received his Bachelor of Music, cum laude, from Georgia Southern University

and his Masters degree in Vocal Pedagogy at The Peabody Institute of The Johns

Hopkins University.

When not performing with The U.S. Army Chorus, Heil has been a featured soloist

with The National Gallery of Art Vocal Ensemble, The Choral Arts Society of

Washington, Loudoun Symphony Orchestra, Southern Georgia Symphony, The Handel

Choir of Baltimore and Gloria Musicae. His oratorio credits include the works of

Beethoven, Brahms, Charpentier, Gounod, Handel, Haydn, Liszt, Mozart, and Vivaldi.

His ensemble contributions include productions for Wolf Trap Opera and The Atlanta

Opera.

In his spare time, Heil serves as a staff instructor for noteBUSTERS, an

extracurricular vocal performance program for elementary students in Washington, D.C.
