Adam Treverton Jones
Associate Principal Contra Bassoon
Adam joins the HK Phil in 2002, playing contrabassoon and bassoon. He studied at the Royal College of Music and Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, earning a First Class Bachelor of Music (Hons) and Master of Music in the process. He enjoys participating in educational outreach concerts, and is frequently involved with chamber performances in venues around HK. He teaches at The Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts, and has adjudicated on various exams and competitions.
During his time with the HK Phil, Adam has had the opportunity to perform with many other orchestras, including the Hallé, BBC Symphony, BBC Philharmonic and Liverpool Philharmonic.
Yoga has been becoming an increasingly important part of his life. He has been practising for a long time, and now loves to share his experience in teaching regular classes. He completed the 300-hour WildLotus Advanced Teacher Training program in April 2021, graduating with a deeper understanding of his own practice, his students’ practice and yogic philosophy. He has always been struck by how the close, detailed relationship between yoga and music practice is constantly revealing new parallels and similarities.
