Award-winning American pianist Jonathan Ware has presented solo recitals across the United States and performed concertos with orchestras including the Mississippi Symphony and Dallas Symphony. Grand Prize winner of the 2005 Kingsville International Young Performer’s Competition, he also won the silver medal at the 2002 Missouri Southern International Competition. Described by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram as an artist who “…played with an ease and spontaneity that belied his years”, Jonathan’s performances have been heard on radio stations across the country including WQXR (New York) and WRR (Dallas), as well as on public television in the documentary Speaking with Music.
Not content to limit himself as a soloist, Jonathan’s attention has turned increasingly to chamber music and vocal piano. His numerous collaborative performances include appearances in Baden bei Wien, Austria, Alice Tully Hall in New York, the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, as well as a recent début at London's Wigmore Hall. Jonathan holds the Bachelor of Music degree as well as the prestigious Performer's Certificate from The Eastman School of Music and received his Master's Degree from The Juilliard School. A Dallas native, his teachers include Lois Nielson, Natalya Antonova and Brian Zeger. Also an avid runner, Jonathan recently completed his first marathon.
