Jason Sherbundy is a pianist, conductor, composer, arranger, orchestrator, and engraver. He started classical piano at age 5, began conducting in grade school, and was a jazz performance major, studying with Mark Levine at Sonoma State University. He has worked in opera and musical theater and with orchestras, choirs, and jazz ensembles. After many years of work in the Bay Area, he worked for over a decade on professional musical theater shows, including shows in San Francisco, North American tours, and three years on Broadway. He appeared on the Tony Awards and the Late Show with David Letterman, and worked on- and off-screen on NBC’s SMASH. He can be heard on the Grammy-nominated New Broadway Cast Recording of A Chorus Line and on the Original Cast Recording of Catch Me If You Can.
Currently Jason is working with soprano Carrie Hennessey on a new project called Amplified Resonance. The first part of this project will be a live recording of favorite Puccini arias, with new orchestrations for a ten-person chamber ensemble. Jason is also the music supervisor, orchestrator, and arranger for Charles Dickens’s David Copperfield, a new musical to premiere in December in Santa Cruz.
Jason would like to thank his partner Sarah for her continued support and Ming Luke for the opportunity to work with BCCO. For more information, visit jasonsherbundy.com.
