What to Expect
Jonathan Stuchbery offers high quality performances in a wide range of styles in the classical music world. From renaissance and baroque music played on period instruments, to composed music of today for modern guitars. Creativity is important to him, and he is comfortable and practiced in arranging music for his instrument. He is at home on the traditional concert stage as well as small venues and unconventional spaces, and in both circumstances places an emphasis on building a relationship with his audience through engaging conversation and education. He has a long list of repertoire to choose from which is suitable for private events, and concerts alike.

Versatile as a soloist, chamber musician and continuo player, Jonathan frequently distinguishes himself; recently performing as a finalist in the 2017 McGill Concerto competition, and receiving the McGill David Moyse Guitar scholarship in 2016 and 2015. Solo performances have included concerts with the McGill Contemporary Music Ensemble and for the Governor General of Canada. Jonathan has performed widely in Canada and the United States.
He is a founding member of the Cygnus trio (Flute, violin, guitar), which places an emphasis on performing not only in traditional venues, but in reaching out to the community through events such as visits to women's shelters, house concerts, and children's programs. As a lutenist he performs frequently with Montréal based ensemble Les Méandres.
Engaging in the creation and performance of new music is highly important to him, and he has premiered music by Juro Kim Feliz, Brice Gatinet, Beatrice Ferreira, Charles Zoll, Patrick Walker and Karalyn Schubring.
Jonathan is currently pursuing a B. Mus in Performance with a minor in Early Music at McGill’s Schulich School of Music, and studies under the tutelage of Jérôme Ducharme and Sylvain Bergeron.
