Jonah Nung

Biography

Jonah Nung is a music director and pianist based in Toronto, Canada. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music in Music Education (Piano) with a minor in Composition at the University of Toronto. Most recently, Jonah music directed Hedwig and the Angry Inch (Victoria College Drama Society) and Carrie: the Musical (Trinity College Dramatic Society) and is currently music directing Into the Woods with the St. Michael’s College Troubadours.

Jonah has been a pit musician and rehearsal pianist on productions including Critic’s Pick winner A Perfect Bowl of Pho (Toronto Fringe Festival 2022), The 25th Annual… Spelling Bee (VCDS), Sweeney Todd in Concert (Ember Island Players Theatre), and Spring Awakening (No Strings Theatre). He has a passion for musical theatre and collaborative music-making because of their ability to foster human connections and amplify marginalized voices. He frequently accompanies vocalists in performance, including Juno winner Measha Brueggergosman-Lee.

While classically trained, Jonah enjoys learning and playing in pop, rock, and other contemporary genres. Outside of theatre, he has arranging and composing experience, with recent composition credits including Sammi Zhang’s animated short film Long-Distance (S21E33 of CBC’s Absolutely Canadian) and WANT, an original musical by Mashreka Mahmood.
