The highlights include singing Dr. Malatesta in Donizetti’s “Don Pasquale” in the family show, singing the role of Dancairo in Bizet’s “Carmen” mainstage, and singing “Hamlet’s” aria from Thomas’ opera with full orchestra and chorus at the Waterfront concert in December of 2015. In the spring of 2014, he sang the “Dichterliebe”, by Schumann with the Northeast Academy of Dance when the cycle was set to ballet. Before that, he covered the roles of the Count in “Nozze di Figaro” by Mozart, and Iago in Verdi’s “Otello” at Wichita Grand in the winter of 2013. In the summer of 2012, Jason covered the role of Valentine in Gounod’s “Faust” at Utah Festival Opera in Logan. Jason is also active as a concert, and oratorio soloist throughout the midwest. In April of 2014, he sang the Verdi duet from “Otello” and Di provenza from “La Traviata” at Carnegie Hall, and in April of 2013, returned to Alma college as the baritone soloist in Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana in their spring 2013 masterworks concert.
