Jason McStoots

Described by critics as “a gifted young tenor with wonderful comedic talents,” an “alluring tenor voice,” and “bright, clear and fully-fledged tenor sonority,” Jason McStoots has performed around the world and the US. His recent appearances include the role of Tabarco in the Boston Early Music Festival’s production of Handel’s Almira, his European debut in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and a Japanese tour of the St. Matthew Passion, both under the direction of Joshua Rifkin, Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers in New York City and Cambridge with the Green Mountain Project, and in Seattle and Portland under Stephen Stubbs, and Mozart’s Abduction from the Seraglio. He has also performed with Boston Lyric Opera, Pacific MusicWorks, Boston Camerata, New Haven Symphony, Tragicomedia, and the Tanglewood Music Center. He joined Blue Heron in 2005 and can be heard on all of the ensemble’s CDs, as well as on the Grammy-nominated recording of Lully’s Pysché and on discs of Charpentier, Blow, and Handel with the Boston Early Music Festival, on the CPO label.
