Lauded for his capable singing and acting by Anne Midgette of the Washington Post, Jason Lee continues to make his mark across many different mediums and eras of music. Recent performances include: Ferrando in Mozart's Cosi fan tutte with Opera NOVA, Fredric in Pirates of Penzance as a special guest performer with the Geroge Mason Opera, and Der Soldat in scenes from Der Kaiser von Atlantis with the Defiant Requiem Group,. No stranger to new music, Jason has worked with the Washington National Opera’s American Opera Initiative on two very recent productions: the role of Dr. Vergara in Douglas Pew’s A Game of Hearts as part of a new works forum at the Opera America Center, and in collaboration with rising composer Huang Ruo and noteworthy playwright David Henry Hwang in a special workshop of their opera An American Soldier, helping to create the role of Danny Chen. Jason also recently joined the Washington National Opera's roster as cover for El Remendado in their 2015-2016 season opener of Carmen. Most recently on the concert stage, Jason has performed as Tenor Soloist for the world premiere of Soldiers of Remembrance in collaboration with the composer, John Carbon and members of the Lancaster Symphony. Other recent concert performances include Tenor Soloist in Mozart's Requiem, Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Handel’s Messiah, and in Stravinsky’s Renard with the Inscape Chamber Orchestra at the National Gallery of Art. Jason has also been a featured recitalist in a wide range of repertoire with various organizations, including the DC Arts Club, Montgomery College Rockville, Christ Church Alexandria, and with the Art of Argento Festival.
