Soon after completing his studies at the Cincinnati Conservatory under William McGraw, the tenor Jeffrey Thompson was awarded first prize in the Concours International de Chant Baroque de Chimay in Belgium by a jury led by William Christie. In 2002 he was selected to participate in the first Le Jardin des Voix with William Christie’s Les Arts Florissants, in a tour of baroque works in Europe’s most prestigious theatres. This resulted in a series of concerts with Les Arts Florissants, including Handel’s Acis and Galatea and Hercules, and motets of Etienne Moulinié. For Virgin Classics he participated in the recording of Charpentier’s Grande Messe des Morts, and sang the part of La Pythonisse in the same composer’s David et Jonathas. In 2004, he sang the tenor solos in Rameau’s motet In Convertendo Dominus with Les Arts Florissants released on an Opus Arte DVD. Jeffrey Thompson has also recorded motets and cantatas of Sébastien de Brossard with La Rêveuse, released in the spring of 2011, and Grétry’s Le Magnifique with Opera Lafayette (Naxos 8.660305). Recent and upcoming engagements include a concert tour with Le Parnasse Français and the title rôles in Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie and Handel’s Judas Maccabeus in Budapest.
