Most recently, Jason was featured making his company debut with Ars Lyrica Houston in their all-Bach program titled “Conflict & Concord'', as well as performing as bass soloist in Handel's Messiah with Chapelwood United Methodist Church. This coming Spring, Jason will be returning to Opera in the Heights, where he was previously a Resident Artist in 2019/20.
