Corey Jamason, harpsichord, was born in New York City and developed a fascination with Baroque music as a young piano student growing up in Puerto Rico and Florida. He was introduced to the harpsichord by Anthony Newman while an undergraduate student at SUNY Purchase and then pursued further studies in early music at Yale University and at the Early Music Institute at Indiana University. His fascination with historically informed performance and a love of American musical theater led him and his colleague Eric Davis to create the Studio for the Early American Musical, an ensemble specializing in reviving American musical theater in historically informed performances. He has performed the Goldberg Variations and The Well-Tempered Clavier throughout the United States and his playing of Bach was described in the Los Angeles Times as displaying “the careful, due balance of objective detachment and lofty passion.” From 2007 to 2014 he was artistic director of the San Francisco Bach Choir. Nominated for a GRAMMY award, recent recordings include performances with American Bach Soloists, violinist Gilles Apap, recorder player Astrid Andersson and El Mundo. He is a contributing author to History of Performance, published by Cambridge University Press. Corey joined the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory in 2001 where he is director of the school’s historical performance program and professor of harpsichord. He has enjoyed working with a variety of ensembles such as the San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Opera, Philharmonia Baroque, Musica Angelica, Camerata Pacifica, Yale Spectrum, and El Mundo.
