Tenor Jason Davis has been hailed by critics as “truly a fine tenor” and “one of the most exciting voices of his generation possessing a voice of tremendous beauty, colour and power”. Daphna Levit of Opera Canada Magazine recently wrote “Jason Davis was perfect as the unscrupulous Duke of Mantua; his huge voice eﬀortlessly communicated whatever emotion he choose to portray - delight, desire, contempt or arrogance.”
He has performed concert and operatic repertoire throughout North America including Vaughn William’s On Wenlock Edge (The Scotia Festival Chamber Music Society) Haydn’s Mass in the Time of War (Paukenmesse) (Farmington Valley Orchestra), Beethoven’s MissaSolemnis (Dalhousie Orchestra), Bach’s Christmas Oratorio (Coro Collegium), Vaughn William’s Four Hymns (Eastern Connecticut Symphony Orchestra) Bach’s St. Matthew Passion (Kings Chapel Choir) and a recent performance as the Evangelist in Bach’s St. John Passion with Collegium Cantorum. Jason’s operatic performances have included roles with Opera New Hampshire, Opera Connecticut, The Opera Theater of Connecticut, Opera New Jersey and more recently as Tamino in Die Zauberflöte (Opera New Brunswick), Idomeneo in Idomeneo (Opera Nova Scotia) as well as Rodolfo in Puccini’s La bohème, the Duke of Mantua in Verdi’s Rigoletto and Canio in Leoncavallo’s I Pagliacci (Maritime Concert Opera).
Along with his busy performing schedule Jason is the founder and Artistic Director of the Broadway Company Players music theatre ensemble and Halifax’s Breaking Waves vocal theatre company and he is also a founding member of the Conservatory Nova Scotia Association where he currently sits on their Board of Directors as treasurer. He also maintains a very active private teaching studio where he oﬀers voice lessons and coachings, RCM vocal exam preparations, RCM speech arts and drama lessons and also theory and ear training lessons. Many of his students have consistently placed or won numerous regional, provincial and national festivals and many have also gone on to pursue studies in vocal and theatre performance degrees at top undergraduate and graduate programs throughout North America.
