Jonathan Estabrooks' Big Band Trailer and Concert

Jonathan Estabrooks as he appears in the Barihunks Calendar
Canadian barihunk Jonathan Estabrooks is one of those multi-faceted singers who could probably succeed at just about anything in show business, from opera, to Broadway to tv/movie acting and anything in between. Folks in Ottawa are going to experience his amazing gifts as a Big Band singer in his "Christmas with a Twist" concert with the Ewashko Singers and Pollcast at the Unitarian Church on December 15th. The concert will feature the music of Bing Crosby.

Tickets available at the door ($30.00), or in advance (General: $25.00; Students and Seniors: $20.00).

Fans of Estabrooks in New York can catch him on March 5th when he performs Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Paul Moravec’s The Blizzard Voices. The New York premier of  Moravec’s oratorio, based on the poetry of Ted Kooser, tells the story of the Great Plains “Children’s Blizzard” of 1888, giving voice to the victims and witnesses of this tragedy.

The remainder of the evening will include songs by Aaron Copland and Charles Ive. Tickets are available at the Oratorio Society of New York website

Estabrooks is featured in our 2013 Charity Calendar as Mr. July in honor of Canada Day. You can support singers like Jonathan Estabrooks, who honed his skills in a young artist program, by purchasing your calendar today.

  1. There's still a chance to back The Bohemians on Kickstarter! A film of La Boheme, with Jonathan playing Colline.

    1. He is actually playing Schaunard but yes looks like a great project! I posted the link below.

    2. Thanks for the heads up. Confession: I mostly know La Boheme through RENT.

    3. I checked it out and I would consider this adaptation a merging of the modern take of Rent, but the classic music of Puccini!
