He has performed recently with Ensemble Caprice, the Theatre of Early Music, I Furiosi, Aradia, the Orchestre Symphonique de Laval and the Orchestre Symphonique de Trois-Rivières, and has featured as a soloist and chamber musician at early music festivals in Montreal, St-Adolphe d’Howard, Saint John, and Sackville, New Brunswick. Jonathan has performed the complete sonatas for harpsichord and violin by Bach with violinist Sari Tsuji, and all of Biber’s Mystery Sonatas in collaboration with violinist Nadia Francavilla. A recent highlight was giving the first performance of a newly built upright harpsichord in Saint John.

In addition to performing, Jonathan has taught at McGill University, where he is also in demand as coach and accompanist. He also maintains and tunes harpsichords, fortepianos and organs at both McGill and Concordia Universities, and tunes for organizations such as Arion Baroque Orchestra, CAMMAC, the Festival International de Musique Baroque de Lamèque and the Fondation Arte Musica. He has been coming to CAMMAC since 2010.
