Praised for his

"Outstanding singing and big, bass-ish baritone"

by The Dallas Morning News

 The 2022/2023 season sees Joseph enter his second year as a TDO (The Dallas Opera) Young Artist, where he returns as Belcore in their production of Donizetti's The Elixir of Love both in schools across north Texas and at the Winspear Opera House in November, as well as study covering Donner and Don Alfonso in their mainstage productions of Wagner's Das Rheingold and Mozart's Cosi fan tutte. 2023 will see Joseph return to American Baroque Opera Company for two debuts: Garibaldo in Handel's Rodelinda at Moody Recital Hall and Sabari in the North American premiere of Cavalli's La Doriclea, which will also be recorded by the company (a first for the work). Joseph also returns to his home state of Iowa in April to perform the baritone solos in Brahm's Ein Deutches Requiem with the Des Moines Choral Society.
