Having served for the past two seasons as General Manager, Jacob maintains continuity in the office and brings with him a proven record of passion for the ensemble's shared artistic vision. Having sung with the ensemble from 2012 - 2015, Jacob is well versed in the collaborative process, and brings extensive musical training with him from his time studying at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, Netherlands. Despite the challenges of art in the time of COVID-19, Jacob is excited to help this Canadian institution continue into a new chapter!

Originally from Edmonton, baritone Jacob Gramit has recently come back to Vancouver from the Netherlands, where he completed a Master of Music in Early Music Singing.  While in the Netherlands, he studied with Pascal Bertin, Peter Kooij, Michael Chance, Dorothee Mields, Robin Blaze, and Lenie van den Heuvel.  Highlights of his time abroad included  projects with Charles Toet, Mike Fentross, Kathryn Cok, a tour of Bach’s B Minor Mass (with performances in America and the Netherlands) under Ton Koopman, and both preparing the edition and performing in Michael Chance’s production of Cavalli’s Giasone.

After graduating from the University of British Columbia (BMus, 2012), Jacob sang for three seasons with musica intima, as well singing as a section leader in the Christ Church Cathedral Choir, where he is currently the artistic director of the Summer Festival of Sacred Music.  As a chorister, he has performed with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra under Alexander Weimann on several occasions, with Capella Amsterdam and Holland Baroque, and was selected to participate in a performance of Spem in Alium with the Tallis Scholars (under Peter Philips), presented by Carnegie Hall.

Dear friends,

Our hearts are heavy today, as musica intima must announce we have cancelled the remainder of our 2019/2020 season, including The Voice of the Sky. We look forward to new opportunities in the coming months to further foster connection through vocal music, especially in this time of social isolation.

musica intima as a society is committed to supporting the vocal artists we contract; we’re proud that we will be paying our singers despite the concert cancellation. We’ll be contacting subscribers and ticket holders in the coming days, and one option will be to join the society in our support of the Vancouver artists by donating your ticket costs back to the organisation. It’s well documented the stressors COVID-19 has put on the worldwide arts community, and every little bit helps.

Please feel free to contact our office with any questions (, and keep your eye on our website for updates on our future plans. Stay safe, stay healthy, and we hope to connect with you soon.

With the end of our 18/19 Season, our 19/20 season is only a few months away! We're pleased to announce our three-concert subscription series: connection.

amore/dolore - Themes of love and pain, and how the two interact will be explored through music of Lauridsen, Monteverdi, David Lang, and Sven-David Sandström.

sing lullaby - Grounded in the British choral tradition, this concert will feature seasonal music by Kenneth Leighton and Herbert Howells, as well as the newer generation of composers, such as Jonathan Dove and James MacMillan.
