Joseph A. Roberts

piano
biography

 

Joseph was born with an insatiable drive to play the piano. Once he was tall enough to reach the keyboard, he went at it until his parents had no choice but to procure adequate training. After a few years of public school, Joseph noticed that he would be routinely pulled out of class to provide music for rehearsals and assemblies. Who wouldn't milk that for all it's worth? By the time he finished elementary school, Joseph played cello in the orchestra, trumpet in the band and he sang in the choir.

In middle school, he began to notice the difference between the sound of a piano playing music and an orchestra playing the same music. This began a lifetime passion for orchestration that inspired him to procure a degree in commercial arranging from the Berklee College of Music. After graduation, Joseph pursued choral studies at Westminster Choir College and harmony at Juilliard.

From piano recitals at Carnegie Recital Hall to swinging standards at the Village Gate, Joseph's career has cut a wide path across a variety of musical genres. He has done musical theatre with The Player's Circle, Unity Theatre, A Quarter to 9ine Productions, and the French Woods Festival for the Performing Arts. Mr. Roberts is currently working on an opera with the Faison Firehouse Theater. Mr. Roberts can be heard on several CD projects including "Purpose to Destiny" and "Savior." He was the featured pianist in the VPUMC recital, "My Friend the Piano".

Joseph Roberts is currently the assistant music director at Vanderveer Park United Methodist Church, Worship leader at Mount Calvary and Saint Mark's United Methodist Churches, and pianist at Shiloh Seventh Day Adventist Church. He still  remains active as an accompanist, arranger and choral director.
