Andrew Jones

Managing Director

Originally from Washington D.C., Andrew Jones has been involved in the classical music scene for most of his life. He began his career as a violist, but quickly realized that his real passion lies in creating opportunities for the community to experience the multifaceted genre that is classical music.

Since 2018, Andrew has been involved in multiple roles, both nationally and internationally, managing concert series and festivals in Perugia, Italy, Naples, FL, and Wilmington, NC. He has specialized in operational duties managing a chamber music series, orchestral and broadway productions, and a wide range of special events. Highlights of these endeavors include managing two international orchestras performing concerti with dozens of students across the world and managing the Sypert Salon Chamber Music at Artis—Naples, which features classical chamber masterworks.

Andrew has prided himself on providing outstanding music education opportunities to students. A highlight was at the Vivace International Music Festival in Wilmington, NC, a summer music festival that allows students to experience the highest level of music regardless of their financial status. These students are able to learn from leading conservatory and university professors, perform for the community, and immerse themselves in music with their peers. Watching students learn and grow from these events has shown Andrew the power that music can shape lives and create opportunities they may not have been able to otherwise experience.

At Emerald City Music, Andrew has made it his personal mission to demonstrate the power of music and the effect it can have on individuals and the community. His excitement, dedication, and tirelessness for this work is what drives him and pushes him to be better every day.

In his spare time, Andrew can be found watching Liverpool Football Club games, trying new breweries, being on the water, and practicing his new-found love of fly fishing.
