Jonathon Hampton's Page

Go ahead and check out my video. I'll wait here...

I perform as an alto, tenor and bass. I'm classically trained but also have a soul and gospel background from growing up in Chicago. Since graduating from Cornell University in 2004, I've performed with choirs throughout the San Francisco Bay and New York City areas. I live in Oakland, CA now and conduct and perform with several choirs. I often do solo work singing African-American spirituals, chamber opera, jazz, and musical theater. With over twenty years of performing experience, I've been lucky to work with folks like Dmitri Hvorostovky, Kathleen Battle, Jessye Norman, Chanticleer, and Seiji Ozawa. You're up next!

My other musical interests, styles, and instruments are:
Medieval and Renaissance. Yup, that includes chant, polyphonic mass settings, and all the great stuff in between. I've been singing choral music since 2nd grade, so it's in my bones, and I love how it makes me and the audience feel. It's beautiful, unique, and challenging, and that's called good music making!

I'm also big on traditional African-American spirituals. I perform and teach about a variety of them, many arranged by Harry T. Burleigh. It hits home with my ethnic identity and just plain feels good to sing. I also feel it's a very important history to share and keep listeners aware of.

I play a tiny bit of piano and guitar as well but definitely don't practice enough!
My favorite artists, influences, and inspirations are:
The Jazzheads: Nat "King" Cole, Bobby McFerrin, Frank Sinatra,

The Choral Geeks: Thomas Tallis, Tomas Luis de Victoria, William Byrd, Josquin de Prez

Hi Jonathon - so sorry but i only just saw this comment. I'm afraid that i've been neglecting this account too much. However, they actually went very well in the end. I've written a blog about them all if you want to check it out. But I'm actually most of the way through my first term at drama school in London studying Musical Theatre now! Also, a huge reason why i've been so negligent to this page is not only because i have been so busy with this course but also because i was actually cast as Johanna in a regional production of Sweeney Todd this Summer which didn't really give me any time to even breathe (especially in that corset!)! Hope all's well with you and the musical exchange!
