Jonathan Mamora is the first prize winner in the 2022 International Olga Kern Piano Competition and has performed throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia. He is Indonesian American and has served as a church pianist and organist - the result of having been enrolled in piano lessons by his parents for the purpose of becoming a church musician.
Jonathan aims to use music as service not only in the church, but also in the community through homes, schools, community centers, and the concert hall. He is currently a doctoral student at the Eastman School of Music.
Acclaimed for his "most assured pianism," "natural, songful lyricism," and "rippling through virtuosic passagework" (The Dallas Morning News), Jonathan has performed throughout North America, South America, Europe, and Asia, and he is a prizewinner of numerous piano competitions.
Jonathan currently serves as the Music Director and Organist of St. John's Episcopal Church in Clifton Springs, New York. He often performs as a collaborative pianist for vocalists, instrumentalists, ensembles, and choirs. As a collaborator, Jonathan holds a graduate assistantship in accompanying at the Eastman School of Music and has received the Eastman Excellence in Accompanying Award.
