         Since 2012 Jason has been the accompanist for the Hallé Youth Choir. This has lead to numerous performances at the Bridgewater Hall alongside tours of Belgium (2012) and Scotland (2013). During Summer 2013 Jason also toured with the Hallé Youth Orchestra as an orchestral pianist concluding at The Sage, Gateshead. Recently, Jason has been involved with the BBC Philharmonic and BBC Singers as an accompanist with projects at the Lowry Centre (Salford) and MediaCityUK.

         The Exon Singers invited Jason as a guest organist for the 2012 Tavistock Festival (Devon) for an 'Olympic Torch' celebration where his improvisation on Howard Moody's ‘Weigh Me The Fire’ drew many members of the audience to the organ console afterwards. Jason was re-engaged by the group in Salisbury later that year for another memorable evening.

           He wowed and excited that audience with an explosion of energy and rapid fire finger-work and interpretation
