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, and Membership 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 an assistant culinary director for the Clayton School District. He loves the outdoors, using his free time to camp, kayak and hike whenever he can. Matt had held multiple administrative roles within the Central States District including Chapter Counselor, Youth in Harmony VP and Convention Chairman. He currently serves the district as Events VP. At the Society level, Matt is a part of the Impact Alignment Team, and is a certified Contest Administrator.
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 stage manager for the Central States District.
