Matt Suellentrop (tenor) started singing barbershop in 2006 while a senior in high school with the Ambassadors of Harmony (AOH) chorus and has won three gold medals with the group. He has sung in two previous Central States District quartet champions, Progression (2010) and Dominant Prep (2012). With AOH, he has served as tenor section leader, board member at large, membership VP and music & performance VP. He spent two years living in Cincinnati, where he sang with the mighty Southern Gateway Chorus.
Now back in St. Louis, he works as the General Manager of food service for Webster University. He loves the outdoors, using his free time to camp, kayak and hike whenever he can. Matt has held multiple administrative roles within the Central States District and currently serves as the District President. At the Society level, Matt was a part of the Impact Alignment Team, and is a certified Administrative Judge.
Most importantly, he shares his love of music and barbershop with his love, Joy. No slouch herself, Joy is a gold-medal baritone in Harmony, Incorporated with Spot On (2013), and currently sings with her quartet, Fierce. She is also the current Convention Chair for the Central States District. Together they spoil their 1-year-old son, Dean to no end, making sure he’s fully immersed in the barbershop experience!
