Jacob Gramit | General Manager

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.

 

Jacob's first season with musica intima was their twentieth anniversary; he is thrilled to be back with the organization just after their twenty-fifth, as the ensemble continues to grow, develop, and challenge new artistic boundaries.
