Jason McStoots

Described by critics as "light and bluff, but neither lightweight nor bland, and with exemplary enunciation" and as having "a silken tenor voice" and "sweet, appealing tone," tenor Jason McStoots has performed around the world and the US. His recent appearances include Bach's Christmas Oratorio and a Japanese tour of the St. Matthew Passion under the direction of Joshua Rifkin, Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers and The Return of Ulysses in Seattle under Stephen Stubbs, and Handel's Acis and Galatea with the Boston Early Music Festival. He has appeared with such groups as Boston Lyric Opera, Pacific MusicWorks, Boston Camerata, Handel Choir of Baltimore, New Haven Symphony, Tragicomedia, and the Tanglewood Music Center, and in annual Monteverdi performances by New York's Green Mountain Project, directed by Scott Metcalfe. He can be heard on recordings with Blue Heron and Cut Circle, as well as on the Grammy-nominated recording of Lully's Pysché and on recordings of Charpentier and John Blow with the Boston Early Music Festival on the CPO label.
