"The best young Abraham I've heard. Full of rich natural feeling - just a wonderful voice."
- Stefan Bevier, Chorus Master (Philharmonia Chorus)
"A promising voice with sonority and colour."
- Andrew Millington, Director of Music (Exeter Cathedral, 1999 - 2016)
Jonathan began singing at a very young age in school musicals and within his local boys choir as a treble in his home town of Reading. It was these experiences which inspired him to pursue music as a career.
At the age of sixteen, he was accepted into the main choir of the National Youth Choir of Great Britain and embarked on 7 years of musicianship training at the highest possible level. These experiences led him to work with and learn from renowned conductors such as Marin Alsop, Daniel Barenboim and Gustavo Dudamel and inspired his interest in conducting.
At the age of eighteen, he gained a choral scholarship at Exeter Cathedral where he trained under the direction of Andrew Millington, performing in multiple concerts and participating in BBC Radio 3 broadcasts.
Jonathan is increasingly in demand as a tenor soloist, conductor and vocal coach around the south-west. He is currently a Tenor Lay Clerk at Buckfast Abbey, Director of Music at Exeter Bach Society and a Guest Conductor of Exeter University Singers.
