Scott Jones

Scott Jones is a musician, educator, and activist from Nova Scotia, Canada. Scott earned a Bachelor of Music from Mount Allison University before deepening his training in choral conducting at the University of Manitoba. Inspired to break down social barriers through music and artistic expression, Scott launched VOX: A Choir for Social Change and Don’t Be Afraid, an anti-homophobia/transphobia campaign. He has travelled across Canada to speak to students and faculty in universities, schools and community centres, and in 2014, Scott was awarded the Nova Scotia Human Rights Award for his advocacy. His recent work has taken him to South Africa, where he presented at the Pathways to Resilience Conference in Cape Town. Scott continues to explore choir as an agent for social change and is currently pursuing a PhD in music education at the University of Toronto.
