We would like to introduce to you our compere for the choral spectacular on Sunday afternoon 3 June at Brisbane City Hall. We are so grateful for Jason's time for this concert. Here is a little bit about him. Book your tickets now!
Jason Barry-Smith is a familiar presence on the Australasian operatic and music theatre stage and as a singing teacher, educator and musical director. His operatic and music theatre roles are wide-ranging and include the title role of Don Giovanni (for which he won a National Opera Award). He created the roles of Julian in Anthony Richie's comic opera Quartet and Samuel in Barry Conyngham's Electric Lenin, and also performed the role of Mamoud in the Australasian premiere of John Adams' The Death of Klinghoffer. Jason is also a much-admired singing teacher and many of his students, including The Veronicas and members of The Ten Tenors, are working in the music industry both nationally and internationally. He has also been Artistic Director of The Queensland Youth Choir; Director - Young and Developing Artist Program, Opera Queensland; and is currently Music Director of Carols in the City, Brisbane; a Sessional Voice Teacher at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University; and Creative Director - Open Stage, Opera Queensland.
