Michael Jones, tenor and trumpet player, performs nationwide as a soloist and chamber musician. Based in Philadelphia, Michael sings regularly with the Grammy award-winning choir, The Crossing.

This coming season, Michael is excited to be singing with Grammy-nominated True Concord Voices and Orchestra, Bach@7 Choral Arts Philadelphia, Les Canards Chantants, and Alium Spiritum.
In addition to his singing career, Michael is also a well-versed trumpeter. He is very much looking forward to one of his DREAM GIGS playing trumpet with Youngblood Brass Band in October in Montana. In addition to that, Michael has been playing regularly at City Church, Philadelphia with Bethany Brooks. Michael has been contracted by Bachelor Boys Band and continues to be sought out for private engagements throughout the east coast and Chicago area.
Michael has recorded on Parma, Albany, World Library Publications (WLP), and GIA. Michael appears on the Grammy-nominated Bonhoeffer, released by the Crossing. He has performed on five Downbeat Award-winning recordings. Michael studied at the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music for his Bachelors in Jazz Trumpet where he studied with Kim Pensyl, David Adams and Scott Belck. In addition, Michael studied at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music for his Masters in Jazz Trumpet under the tutelage of Victor Goines, Donald Nally, Brad Mason and Keven Keys.
