Joseph Adams is an emerging tenor hailing from Lethbridge, Alberta. He is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s of Music in Vocal Performance under the study of Dr. Blaine Hendsbee at the University of Lethbridge. Joe is best known amongst his peers for his rapid coloratura and “supersonic” high range. He is fortunate enough to have had several major performances with the Lethbridge Symphony through the U of L Opera Workshop program; performing such roles as Filch in the Beggars Opera and Paris in 10 Belles and No Ring. Joe has a great passion for choral music and is a member of the U of L Singers on top of working seasonally with the Southminster United Church Chancel Choir. These positions often grant him additional opportunities for performing solo repertoire as well. He has been singing all his life and is a keen and versatile actor on the stage. When he’s not singing Joe is found playing guitar or practicing martial arts. He is entirely self-taught on guitar and occasionally enjoys playing the ukulele as well. The Japanese art of Kendo is his martial art of choice; in March, he recently acquired the rank of Ikkyu. His next goal with Kendo is to achieve the rank of Shodan (Black Belt). With an ever-positive attitude, he searches tirelessly for ways to improve his abilities and approach to singing. Joe hopes to become a professional singer and voice instructor following his Undergraduate and Masters degrees.
