PERFORMER

Born in Cheshire, a passion for music led Jordan to to pursue an undergraduate degree in Music (BMus Hons.) at the University of Manchester and, at present, a Masters (MMus) in singing at the Royal Northern College of Music, where he studies under Matthew Best.

Jordan's performance career is diverse. On stage his roles span classic and contemporary operatic repertoire. His roles include Herald in the Royal Northern College of Music's presentation of Vaughan Williams' The Pilgrim's Progress, as well as Silvio in Pagliacci (Leoncavallo). In new muisc, he has appeared as Townsperson in Buxton Festival Opera's The Orphans of Koombu and Prisoner in Louis Ashton-Buttler's The Ephemeral Legend of the Madman's Handkerchief, a role Jordan created with Manchester Contemporary Youth Opera in 2017. His love of comic roles has been explored in appearances in the roles of Lord Mountararat in Iolanthe (Gilbert and Sullivan) and Baron Zeta in The Merry Widow (Lehar).

In concert, Jordan has given acclaimed performances in pieces by Mozart, Haydn, Rossini and Vaughan Williams. He is also accomplished in the field of English song, with a poetic and musical attention that have found great expression in the works of Elgar, Somervell, Butterworth and others. Jordan has a longstanding love for classic musicals, Hollywood and the standards of the Great American Songbook which he expresses in style and song.
