Paul W. Wiggin


Paul Wiggin, Tenor 1 – A Saengerfest lynchpin almost from the beginning, Paul has dedicated his life to singing for the uplift of others. A vocalist for almost 80 years, the youthful lyric tenor instinctively harmonized to simple familiar tunes in kindergarten. “I almost got arrested for singing the wrong melody,” he jokes. Read more about Paul. He studied both the technical and spiritual sides of singing, enrolling for a time in ministerial studies at Andover Newton Theological School. But he realized music could be his best venue for “serving others.” He began soloing at area churches and temples and he founded the non-profit MUSE, Inc. (Music for Shut-In Elders) to bring comfort and delight to the elderly through live music. A Newton native, he and his wife recently moved to Bedford. They have four children and seven grandchildren. Paul believes, “Music is a way of life fulfillment. It completes your life and fills your heart and soul. It’s so much for the giver, but it’s almost the same gift for the receiver.”
