Jonathan Harvey is Assistant Professor of Music and Director of Choirs at Fitchburg State University in Fitchburg, MA. He also serves as the Music Director of the Brattleboro Concert Choir in Brattleboro, VT, and Music Director of the Sem Summer Music Festival at Wyoming Seminary College Preparatory School in Kingston, PA.

Bach, and his frequent performances of Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque repertoire. His commissioning projects, composer collaborations, and frequent performances of new works are a testament to his commitment to ensuring that classical music is a living, breathing art form.
Jonathan has previously held music director positions with universities, community music organizations, and churches in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Indiana, and is a sought-after clinician and adjudicator. He has participated in conducting fellowship programs at Oberlin Conservatory and Yale School of Music, and has conducted in masterclasses with Simon Carrington, Dale Warland, Monica Huggett, Charles Bruffy, and Vance George, among others. He is a member of the American Choral Directors Association, the National Collegiate Choral Organization, College Music Society, and Chorus America. He currently lives in central Massachusetts with his wife Jessica Adamick and their son Wally.
