Alice Jones in Concert: May 20
Raised in Austin, TX, Alice Jones is a musician whose multi-faceted career welcomes new listeners into the world of music. As a flutist, composer, teacher, and administrator, she pushes against the boundaries of what it means to be a musician, whose voices can be heard, and what success looks like. She was praised by Mario Davidovsky as “the flute player who could really play” and Fanfare Magazine called her 2017 album with Ensemble 365 “pretty music faultless... required listening.” She has been a featured soloist and chamber musician at the Look and Listen Festival, Composers Now Festival, the Yale-China Music Exchange in China, the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and Chamber Music Campania (Italy). Her chamber music arrangements and compositions have been performed by the Phoenix Orchestra (Boston), University of New Mexico horn studio, Lucera Vocal Institute (Italy), Fourth Wall Ensemble, and around the world in her #tinyefforts2020 and #tinyefforts2021 projects. Alice teaches flute and community building in Juilliard’s Music Advancement Program and previously taught at the Aaron Copland School of Music at CUNY Queens College, CUNY Queensborough Community College, CUNY Borough of Manhattan Community College, and SUNY Purchase College. Alice graduated from Yale University (BA), SUNY Purchase (MM, AD), and the CUNY Graduate Center (DMA). In 2020, she became the Assistant Dean of Community Engagement and Career Services at The Juilliard School. Alice lives in Brooklyn, NY. When she's not musicking, she’s likely walking her dogs or making ice cream.
