Jordan Rock discovered performance with a violin in his hands, playing in orchestras, string quartets, and even a rock band. After finding that singing came more naturally to him, he tucked his violin under his bed and studied vocal performance and musicology at Boston University, where his teachers included Anne Howard Jones, Phyllis Hoffman, and Mark Goodrich. Since graduating, Jordan has sung with Boston’s Cantata Singers and Musica Sacra and in Philadelphia’s Mendelssohn Club. He is currently a core singer at the Philadelphia Episcopal Cathedral with Thomas Lloyd.

After having worked with specialty foods for ten years, Jordan is now pursuing his master’s degree in social work at Bryn Mawr College. He loves living in West Philly, buying irresponsible amounts of vegetables at farmer’s markets, and making pottery. He is happiest at the dinner table with his friends and his wife, Caroline.
