The Brattleboro Camerata is a new vocal ensemble, a chamber choir consisting of 12 to 16 singers, specializing in both Renaissance-era and Renaissance-inspired music.
In collaboration with Music Director Jonathan Harvey, the Brattleboro Camerata will explore both beloved classics and under-performed gems through innovative and energetic programming and performance.
Music Director Jonathan Harvey
Dr. Jonathan Harvey has been Music Director of the Brattleboro Concert Choir since 2018. In addition to his work with the BCC, he is also Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choirs at Fitchburg State University, and Music Director of the newly-formed Brattleboro Camerata.
Jonathan’s commissioning projects, composer collaborations, and frequent performances of new and contemporary works are a testament to his commitment to ensuring that classical music is a living, breathing art form. His dedication to early music has inspired his research, presentations, and recordings of the music of Venetian Renaissance composer Adrian Willaert, his published work on music of Orlando di Lasso and C.P.E. Bach, and his frequent performances of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque repertoire.
Jonathan has previously held music director positions with universities, community music organizations, and churches in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Indiana, and is a sought-after clinician and adjudicator. He is a member of the American Choral Directors Association, the National Collegiate Choral Organization, College Music Society, and Chorus America. He serves as the Collegiate Chair for the Massachusetts chapter of ACDA, and as a board member and Grants Committee Chair for Choral Arts New England. He currently lives in central Massachusetts with his wife Jessica and their son Wally.
