Many recitals have been performed for colleges and universities, AGO chapters and churches from California to Maine to Florida. Engagements abroad have included recitals in Japan, and in 2007, a series of recitals in Bulgaria. Additionally, he has performed frequently as both organ and harpsichord soloist, and as a continuo player with several prominent orchestras.
For his Furman recital, Jones will perform works by Buxtehude, Domenico Scarlatti, J.S. Bach (a selection of organ chorales from the famous collection “Das Orgelbüchlein”), Mendelssohn, Hindemith, Saint-Saens and American composer William Grant Still.
An alumnus of Stetson University, Jones holds three advanced degrees from Yale University School of Music.
The Hartness Organ Series presents recitals each season by major national and international organ recitalists. These concerts feature the Hartness Organ, Opus 121 of the C.B. Fisk organ building firm of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The 42-stop organ, a gift from the late Tom and Edna Hartness, was presented in honor of Bobby and Becky Berry Hartness in 2004.
