Voice 2022 – Art Song Division
2022: Across the country, Canadian classical music circles are turning their ears toward baritone Jonah Spungin. The Ottawa native is ready to demonstrate his knack for musical storytelling at Voice 2022.
After earning two degrees at McGill University, Jonah Spungin was an Emerging Artist with Calgary Opera before joining the Canadian Opera Company’s coveted Ensemble Studio program. Spungin kicked off this season with Gianni Schicchi at the COC, and he’ll return to the company for their upcoming productions of La traviata and The Magic Flute.
When he’s not singing, he’s known to strum a guitar, beatbox, and use his baritone voice for enthusiastic pop music covers.
