Today's Musicians

Joshua is a native of New Orleans, LA which is where he first discovered his love for music. As a member of the New Orleans Children’s Chorus, he discovered the professional world of choral music and that fueled his decision to become a music major. Joshua has a Bachelor of Arts in music with an organ emphasis and (unofficially) conducting from Andrews University. Currently, he is pursuing a Master of Music in choral conducting from The University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music, and is the director of choirs for St. Barnabas Episcopal Church in Montgomery, Ohio.
When not found in school or rehearsal, Joshua enjoys cooking because of the shared ability between cooking and music to bring together people from all walks of life to sit down and share an experience together.
