Joshua Chandra is an award-winning concert artist who’s performed with seven symphony orchestras to date across five countries worldwide.

As a self-taught composer with no formal training in music composition, Josh received First Place for his intense solo-piano work An American Toccata in the 2018 statewide Composers Today contest of the Music Teachers National Association of California (MTAC). He also writes electronic music and pedagogical pieces.
Josh holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from CSU Fullerton, and most recently accompanied the Wisconsin Choral Directors Association‘s January 2022 All-State High School Bass and Treble Clef Choirs in concert. He is currently Director of Music at St. John Vianney Catholic Parish in Brookfield, WI, where he plays piano and organ, directs the “Vianney Voices” parish choir, and directs the handbell choir in Masses and special events for 2,000+ members.
