Jos Milton joins the faculty of University of Mississippi as Assistant Professor of Music. He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in voice from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University, a Master of Music in voice from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and a Bachelor of Music in voice and music education from Trinity University.
Jos Milton is known for his innovative approach to traditional vocal instruction. Equally at home in the studio or the classroom, he employs both kinesthetic exercises and visual imagery techniques, working with singers across a broad range of ability levels. He previously taught voice at Concordia University in Austin, Texas. He also designed a series of vocal workshops for the Conspirare Symphonic Choir and the Texas Choral Consort. His passion for music education extended to the community at large as he presented pre-curtain lectures for Austin Lyric Opera productions.
Milton's recent performance schedule has included numerous engagements as tenor soloist with the Texas Early Music Project, Texas Choral Consort, La Follia Baroque, and Austin Civic Chorus. He also sings regularly with Conspirare, Austin's Grammy-nominated vocal chamber ensemble. While living in New York City, Milton was a resident artist with the Bach Vespers Series at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and performed solo movements in more than fifty Bach cantatas. Opera credits include Gernando in Haydn's rarely performed L'Isola disabitata, Pedrillo in Abduction from the Seraglio, Rodolfo in La Bohème, and Ferrando in Così fan tutte. His performances in oratorio and concert repertoire encompass the works of Bach, Beethoven, Britten, Charpentier, Handel, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Monteverdi, Mozart, Schütz, and Vaughan Williams.
