Joshua Feltman, Music Director
Contact Joshua by Email
Joshua Feltman is a multi-faceted musician working in such diverse environments as education and curriculum, artistic administration and entrepreneurship, orchestral editing and production, and theater and choral direction. His compositions have been performed by orchestras, wind ensembles, and chamber groups and recorded on a major label. In New York he served multiple roles with the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Americas and as co-director of Classical Revolution NYC. He led the Contemporary Ensemble at the Graduate Center for five seasons and ConTempo at Brooklyn College for two while completing his PhD at the City University of New York. Joshua has served as music director for two churches prior to his arrival at Skyline and is an accomplished pianist with a creative streak when it comes to playing hymns on the organ.
I would like to invite anyone who likes to sing to join in the choir at Skyline. Incorporating all levels of musicianship is important, and worship at Skyline will benefit from your energy no matter what your skill level. Participating in musical worship as a group is more important to me than the style or quantity of music performed. I would like to highlight the educational opportunities, positive group dynamic and confidence-building aspects of choral singing above all else. In my own playing I strive to create the right mood for worship even if the choice of music is not inherently connected to the liturgy or the season, but choir selections will usually be integrated into the liturgy in a way which enriches the musical experience for both participant and audience.
