Jason Dyer, tenor, received his vocal training from Idaho State University and the University of Idaho, where he received his Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance in 2015. At these universities Jason had the privilege to sing for incredible professors who helped him progress exponentially as a singer, performer, and human being. He is grateful for the incredible education he continues to receive through these relationships, and for the skills he learned that have enabled him to build his current, crazy career in South East Idaho.
Jason works actively as a singer and music educator in Idaho Falls where he maintains a private voice studio of nearly twenty singers, conducts the Idaho Falls Youth Arts Centre’s Performance Choir, the St. Paul’s Methodist Choir, and performs with and coaches for the Idaho Falls Opera Theatre. He is also active in Pocatello where he sings with and serves as the tenor section leader for the Idaho State University Chamber Choir, and with the Portneuf Chamber Music Ensemble (founding member). Recent roles include Anthony in Idaho Falls Opera Theatre’s production of Sondheim’s Seeney Todd, and Billy Crocker in Idaho State University’s summer musical, Cole Porter’s Anything Goes.
Jason is a versatile performer who loves to sing musical theatre, opera, early music, chamber music, and anything else his friends throw his way. He loves the collaborative and connective nature of music – especially live music; and most especially live vocal music. There are few things so human and moving as to hear some of the most beautiful sentiments ever set to paper realized harmonically and melodically by some of the greatest creative minds to have ever lived. It is Jason’s distinct honor and life’s pursuit to more completely give himself to this art.
When Jason in not singing he is probably reading, writing, going on walks, riding his bike, shooting pool, chasing enlightenment at the Idaho Yoga Coop, or engaging in philosophical discourse with his cats Hugo and Sebastian (the two greatest minds of the modern world).
