Warren Jones

Warren Jones performs with many of today’s best-known artists, including Stephanie Blythe, Denyce Graves, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Anthony Dean Griffey, Ruth Ann Swenson, Bo Skovhus, Samuel Ramey, James Morris, John Relyea, Joseph Alessi, and Richard “Yongjae” O’Neill—and is Principal Pianist for the exciting California-based chamber music group Camerata Pacifica. He was given the very prestigious Achievement Award by the Music Teachers National Association at their national convention in 2011, the highest award that the Association bestows; he was named Collaborative Pianist of the Year for 2010 by the publication Musical America, and the same year was named Vocal Coach of the Year by the publication Classical Singer. In addition, he received an Honorary Doctorate in Music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music in 2010. In the past he has partnered such great performers as Marilyn Horne, Håkan Hagegård, Kathleen Battle, Barbara Bonney, Carol Vaness, Judith Blegen, Tatiana Troyanos and Martti Talvela. His collaborations have earned consistently high praise from many publications: The Boston Globe termed him “flawless” and “utterly ravishing”; The New York Times, “exquisite”; and The San Francisco Chronicle said simply, “He is the single finest accompanist now working.” He is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music and has served on the Board of Overseers and the Board of Visitors at that school.
