Jonathan is a versatile tenor, equally comfortable on the operatic stage, concert platform, and choral circuit.
Notable recent roles include Don Jose Carmen (Baseless Fabric Theatre), Hoffmann The Tales of Hoffmann (Kentish Opera), Pinkerton Madame Butterfly (Opera Up Close), and Cavaradossi Tosca (Bridgetower Ensemble).
Concert highlights include Britten Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings, Elgar The Kingdom, and Britten St. Nicolas.
Jonathan completed his operatic studies at the Alexander Gibson Opera School (Royal Conservatoire of Scotland), under the tutelage of Iain Paton and Amand Hekkers. Now based in London, he continues his studies with Jeff Stewart.
Jonathan enjoys a good relationship with many of the smaller-scale and touring opera companies and has worked extensively with larger companies such as Scottish Opera, Grange Park Opera, Longborough Festival Opera, West Green House Opera and Mid Wales Opera.
Principal roles whilst studying include Ruggero in Puccini's La Rondine (RCS), Tamino in the Young Opera Venture's touring production of The Magic Flute and Le Mari in Poulenc's surreal one-act opera Les Mamelles de Tiresias (RCS).
In addition to his singing, Jonathan is enjoying a burgeoning teaching career, and, as a TEFL qualified tutor, offers English diction coaching to both native and non-native speakers.
As well as his operatic and oratorio work, Jonathan is privileged to sing regularly for Songhaven, an organisation that embraces the power of music to provide joy and connection to people living with dementia.
Jonathan has enjoyed a life-longstanding association with the St Endellion Music Festival. Whilst growing up he sang in the chorus, making his way down through the voice parts! He now enjoys cameo appearances in many of the Festival's concerts and operas, whilst assisting behind the scenes for most of the other concerts.
