Violinist Gabriella Jones studied for ten years at Chetham’s School of Music, before graduating from Trinity College, Cambridge in 2016. Her musical successes began at an early age; whilst at Chetham’s, she was awarded the school’s prestigious concerto and chamber prizes, and led the Chetham’s Symphony Orchestra, under conductors such as Paul Mann, David Hill and Paul McCreish. She has performed as a soloist and chamber musician across the UK and Europe, including appearances at the Wigmore Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Cadogan Hall, and combined with musicians such as Leon McCawley, Tom Poster, Nicola Bennedetti and the Endellion Quartet.
Whilst at Cambridge, Gabriella held a University Instrumental Award, giving numerous chamber recitals across the University. She led the University Chamber Orchestra, performing under the baton of Sir Roger Norrington, Carlos Izcaray and Nick Collon. In 2013, Gabriella co-founded the Trinity College Chamber Orchestra, performing regularly with the ensemble both as leader, and concert soloist.
Gabriella frequently collaborates with composers, and has premiered works by Sally Beamish and John Joubert, amongst others. At the opposite end, Gabriella performs regularly as a baroque violinist, playing with ensembles such Instruments of Time and Truth, Florilegium and Wond’rous Machine, and she frequently leads the Royal College of Music Baroque Orchestra. Her baroque violin is a 1756 Jacob Kloz which is generously on loan by the Cherubim Trust.
