Gwyn Parry-Jones

Gwyn has a rich and varied background, having wide experience both as a performing musician and as music educator. He has played under many of the world’s great conductors, and has appeared in a solo or chamber music role in, amongst others, the Barbican, St. David’s Hall, the Hong Kong Cultural Centre and the Teatro Monumental, Madrid. He has held university posts at Manchester, Reading and Oxford, and has a number of published musical works, mainly for wind instruments or voices. Gwyn has never believed in a dichotomy between musical scholarship and musical performance, and believes the two should complement each other.
