Award-winning pianist Joseph Kingma is known for his poetic approach and encompassing technique, as the New York Concert Review writes that he: “coaxed the listener into the music’s poetry from the very first notes…though his technique emerged through the program as one which is capable of anything, it was always used in the service of the music itself.”
This past season included re-engagements with the Chamber Orchestra of Sarasota and the Manassas Symphony, performing Bach’s Piano Concerto in F minor and Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37, respectively. Additionally, he has been invited as a guest artist for the Rapides Symphony Orchestra, Louisiana Piano Series International, Florida International University, Samford University, Carson-Newman University, and the Epiphany Tuesday Concert Series. He also performed Schubert’s “Wanderer” Fantasy at the 2023 American Liszt Society Festival, celebrating the Schubert-Liszt connection. The Mississippi Music Teachers Association invited Joseph to be the 2023 guest artist for its state conference held at Mississippi State University.
Joseph has won several awards in international competitions, including first prize in the American Liszt Society’s first Franz Liszt International Piano Competition and third prize in the 2022 American Prize Competition for his performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5, Op. 73 with the Chamber Orchestra of Sarasota.
A frequent concerto soloist, he has been engaged with the Rapides Symphony, Monroe Symphony, Gulf Coast Symphony, Palm Beach Atlantic Symphony, Spring Hill Orchestra, and Brazos Chamber Orchestra. His solo engagements include Chicago’s Dame Myra Hess Concert Series, New York’s Yamaha Artist Services Performance Series, the Dorothy MacKenzie Price Piano Series, the Music Institute of Chicago, the Timucua Arts Foundation, L’Oasis Musicale, and many others.
Several of his performances have been featured on Chicago’s classical music radio station, 98.7 WFMT. He has earned repeat performances with the Palm Beach Chamber Music and Sonus International Music Festivals.
Joseph earned his DMA from the University of Texas at Austin with Anton Nel, and his MM and BM from Rice University with Robert Roux. His younger years were significantly influenced by his studies with Elena Arseniev, Philip Pletcher, and Aviram Reichert.
Joseph taught at Louisiana College from 2016-2018, and held the position of Keyboard Division Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Piano at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, FL, from 2018-2023. He runs an independent in-person and online teaching studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where his students consistently excel in festivals and competitions.
