Recently, Joel was featured as a solo pianist with the McMaster Chamber Orchestra. He has been involved with the McMaster University Concert Band where he played alto saxophone and piano. He has also been a guest pianist for the Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in the 2018-20 seasons, where he had the opportunity to participate in a rehearsal with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra. During his time at McMaster, Joel has played for many events including McMaster Alumni Homecoming Lunch, May at Mac, Humanities Christmas Lunch as well as a pre-concert Christmas Sing Along at the Hamilton Philharmonic, to name a few.
