Reader Submission: Jonathan Estabrooks

Jonathan Estabrooks
We continue to receive reader submissions and are grateful for your continued enthusiasm in exposing us to new talent. We received two submissions from other singers in the last few weeks and here is the first, Canadian Jonathan Estabrooks. This submission came with the note, "I have a feeling that Jonathan would be flattered to be on the site." Well, we're more than happy to oblige.

Estabrooks is a Juilliard graduate and the winner of the prestigious 35th Oratorio Society of New York Vocal Competition. He appeared with the accompanist Steven Blier in his Festival of Song Spring Gala along with soprano Kelli O'Hara and tenor Joseph Kaiser. In late 2010, he was heard in the role of Belcore on a 20-city tour with the Jeunesses Musicale du Canada. He is also another in our long list of singers who have sung Tarquinius in Britten's "The Rape of Lucretia."

He has also performed for the Governor General, The Prime Minister of Canada, the US Ambassador to Canada, The Italian Ambassador to Canada and President Bill Clinton.

You can follow Estabrooks on YouTube with his feature "Jonathan Daily." Here is a sample episode:

    Go Jonathan! I've been a fan since meeting you at Trinity College! I confess to being jealous at your pick for "Barihunks", for I am a baritone but masquerading as a tenor- and would like to be recognized as a hunk but in any event your success is as merited as it has been surprising. Best of luck,
