Alexandra Jones


Alexandra Jones

Cellist, Alexandra Jones is a chamber musician, orchestral player, and educator living in New York City. She holds degrees from New York University and SUNY Purchase; studying with Marion Feldman and Julia Lichten. She performs and records classical orchestral and chamber repertoire as well as contemporary art music, pop, jazz and is a member of ensemble Mise-En, a contemporary chamber ensemble focused new aesthetics and exposing repertoire of challenging new sounds to diverse audiences.

An avid supporter of music education, she began learning the cello through the community music program in her hometown of Brainerd, Minnesota. The grass-roots nature of the program showed her the importance of string education in smaller communities, and gave her the opportunity to begin teaching at a young age.

Most recently, Ms. Jones performed in the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s Masterclass Series and was awarded a fellowship position in the Atlantic Music Festival’s Contemporary Ensemble.
