Berklee Summer Concert SeriesMario Jose
San Francisco Bay Area native Mario Jose has been singing and performing since he was just a little guy. Jose is 21 years old and recently graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts. There is no doubt about it—this boy was born to entertain.
After graduating high school in 2006, Jose headed to Southern California to attend Fullerton College, where he attained a solid base of classical and jazz vocal techniques while studying under Brandon Brack, Jamie Shew, and John Tebay, and performing in venues ranging from the Orange County Performing Arts Center to Knotts Berry Farm.
At Berklee, Jose performed all over Boston. He was in Pitch Slapped, a student-run a cappella group that won the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella contest this spring. He also performed in numerous big-stage shows at the college including Berklee's Pop/Rock Showcase; Shining Stars: The Music of Earth, Wind and Fire with special guest Philip Bailey; The Great American Songbook: The Music of Motown; Encore Gala; Berklee Meets Don Was featuring Don Was; and Singers Showcase.
Jose plans to move to Los Angeles to pursue his career. He would like to thank his family, friends, and fans for their undying love and support.
