JEAN-PAUL JONES is a countertenor and educator currently working in the Bay Area. He received his BM Vocal Performance from Cal State Northridge and can be seen performing with many Bay Area ensembles including Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra Chorus and The Grace Cathedral Choir of Men and Boys. More recently he has made a name for himself in the SF drag scene under the guise of Effervescence Jackson; a delightfully unpredictable and unforgettable performer. He has been in productions of Hair, La Cage Aux Folles, Le Nozze Di Figaro, Dido and Aeneus and even sang in L.A. Opera's production of Porgy and Bess! He is a very versatile performer and looks forward to sharing his gifts with the audience for "The Last Five Years".
