Jason Liebson is a conductor, pianist, and multi-instrumentalist who currently resides in an apartment in New York, NY. He subsides on a diet of musical theatre and Diet Coke, spending most of his time music directing or collaborating with artists in any other way. From a young age Jason has played piano, continuing his maternal musical lineage. After being shown a VHS of Riverdance at an early age, Jason began his dance education with tap, eventually branching out to all forms of dance. Shortly thereafter he began performing on stage in musicals with Puttin' on Productions (POPs) in roles such as the Cat in the Hat, Danny Zuko, and Aldolpho from The Drowsy Chaperone. His performing experience was backed by educational opportunities under the guidance of the technical artists at POPs and other theatre companies around southern California. After high school Jason joined The Young Americans, a non-profit music outreach organization that allowed him to perform and teach internationally in Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Ireland, Japan, and around the continental United States. While there he studied choral music and performance techniques from Milton C. Anderson, Bill Brawley, and Gary Delk. Following his time with the organization he started his education at Chapman University, studying orchestral conducting and collaborative piano while also assisting with music direction on theatre and music department productions including Cabaret, The Who's Tommy, Gianni Schicchi, and Suor Angelica. Recent music direction credits include James and the Giant Peach (OC Premiere), Sweeney Todd, 13 the Musical, and Anything Goes.
