Jennifer Jones has performed as a soloist with Symphony Nova Scotia, NSYO, Dalhousie Chamber Orchestra, Chebucto Orchestra, and Symphony New Brunswick. Over the past three decades, her work as a chamber musician has frequently been recorded by the CBC. She has performed at the Gerhart Chamber Music Festival in Alabama, the Salisbury Summer Institute in England, the Arcadia Music Festival in Maine, the Scotia Festival of Music, the Fredericton Music Festival, and many years at the Indian River Music Festival in Prince Edward Island.

Throughout her career, she has maintained a busy private studio, and is also a faculty member of Acadia University’s Department of Music. One of her greatest pleasures is coaching members of the NSYO. She has adjudicated exams and festivals and has been on the faculty of various summer institutes throughout the Maritimes. Symphony Nova Scotia is where Jennifer devotes most of her energy as she enjoys collaborating with so many fine musicians, along with her collaborations within the Blue Engine String Quartet and the Rhapsody Quintet.
