The spring concert season at Cherry Hill continues on June 16 with the annual student recital, performed this year by pianist Timothy Jones.
Each year a student is recommended by his or her teacher for consideration as the young musician of the year at Cherry Hill. This student must show unusual promise of mastery in his or her chosen musical field.
At the age of 21, Jones has already established himself as a highly accomplished solo, chamber and collaborative pianist. He has recently won first prize in the Music Teachers National Association National Young Artists Competition, which required three first prize performances up and down the east coast. He has also been a prizewinner of various other competitions, including the Russel C. Wonderlic Competition.
Jones recent performances have taken place at the Aspen Institute on the Wye River, University of North Carolina School of the Arts, Peabody Institute and Harris Hall (Aspen Music Festival).
Jones has studied privately with Douglas Humphereys and Anton Nel, and has participated in masterclasses with Robert McDonald, John Perry, Richard Goode and Leon Fleisher. He has recently graduated from the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University and will be pursuing his master’s degree in the fall at the University of Texas at Austin with renowned pianist and pedagogue, Anton Nel.
The program will consist of the music of Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt and Grieg.
The 3 p.m. performance is one of two free concerts sponsored by the Cherry Hill Historic Foundation each year. A reception will follow the performance.
