Born in the culturally rich Mainz, Germany, raised in a musical family home in idyllic Guntersblum, between vineyards and the Rhine; the best conditions to awaken love for classical music in the young Jonas Boy.


In his childhood and youth he was trained in the piano, violoncello and at the age of 19 for the first time in singing. After several semesters of Bachelor of Education Music, he began to study the voice with Prof. Andreas Karasiak at the Hochschule für Musik Mainz in 2013 and graduated his diploma with distinction in 2017.


During his studies and later on he earned operatic experiences from several productions, e.g. Mozart’s “La finta giardiniera” (Belfiore) at the Hochschule für Musik Mainz, A. Scarlatti’s “Irrungen der Liebe” (Armindo) at Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, R. Strauß’s “Capriccio” (Diener) at Oper Frankfurt, as a tenor in chamber choirs for Händel’s “Xerxes” and Mozart’s “Betulia liberata” and G. Rossini’s “La Gazzetta” at Oper Frankfurt. In 2018/19 he sang Monteverdi’s “L’Orfeo” as a soloistic tenor/altus in the choir at Staatstheater Darmstadt.


In 2018 he sang the lead tenor part in J.S. Bach’s Johannes Passion (soloistic ensemble), conducted by Sigiswald Kuijken.


In 2019 he participated in the La Petite Bande Summer Academy (Sigiswald Kuijken and Marie Kuijken), where he sang the role of Nencio in Haydn’s opera buffa “L’Infedelta delusa”.


In 2015/16 he did recordings with SWR Rundfunk of Telemann’s Adventskantaten/Weihnachtskantaten with the Reutlinger Knabenchor conducted by Christian Bonath.


In 2019 he took part in a SONY recording of Händel's Alexander Feast as a choir singer and altus soloist under the direction of Lorenzo Ghirlanda.Currently.


Not least motivated by his affinity for early music, he learned special skills in baroque singing and historically informed performance practice in numerous master classes with internationally renowned musicians, such as Ton Koopman, Masaaki Suzuki, Sigiswald Kuijken, Konrad Junghänel, Michael Hofstetter, Terry Wey and Andreas Scholl.


In addition to his concert activity as a freelance singer, he is currently studying the special tenor technique “Voce Faringea” with the help of private lessons from Prof. Alexander Mayr (Vienna).
