Grand Rapids Trumpeter

Jonathan has amassed a wide range of musical experience ranging from liturgical music to commercial big band. While at Calvin, Jonathan performed Handel's "The Trumpet Shall Sound" in a series of performances across Michigan with Mark Moliterno, then a professor of music at Calvin, and Dr. Hyesook Kim, currently a professor of music at Calvin. Jonathan has retained a close relationship with this piece of music, performing it in a number of area churches, weddings, and with the Calvin Oratorio Society accompanying basses Jason Thoms (2011) and Ricardo Lugo (2012). Also in the baroque oratorio style, Jonathan also performed Handel's "Let the Bright Seraphim" from the oratorio Samson with Diane Penning and Dr. Ken Bos for the Grand Rapids Choir of Men and Boys 2010 concert entitled "Music for Royal Occasions".
