Originally from Oregon, USA, American Bass-baritone and cornettist Jedediah Allen received his Associates Degree and Bachelor of the Arts in vocal performance from Central Washington University where he studied opera, art song, and jazz predominately. After starting a career in early music, Jedediah pursued a master’s degree in voice at the Early Music Institute at Indiana University. There, he also began studies in cornetto performance under Kiri Tollaksen which led him to be featured as a cornett player and vocal soloist at both Boston and Berkeley Early Music festivals where he also collaborated with noted ensembles such as “Voices of Music” and “Magnificat.” Mr. Allen then re-located to Basel, Switzerland to study at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He has since been awarded two master’s degrees: first in cornetto performance under Bruce Dickey and the second in the AVES (Advances Vocal Ensemble Studies) program directed by Anthony Rooley and Evelyn Tubb. While in Europe, Jedediah has performed in as well as recorded with many ensembles and projects most notably with Anthony Rooley, Hervé Niquet, and is a member of Ensemble La Sestina and Chant 1450 and many others.
