Although Joseph just joined Doorway for Christmas of 2022, he has been making music locally for many years and has been a member of many groups including the Smithfield Strings, Peninsula Concert Band, and Virginia Choral Society. He currently plays clarinet with the Tidewater Winds Concert Band and Chesapeake Bay Wind Ensemble, and sings with the choir at Christ & St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk. Joseph graduated from Christopher Newport University with a degree in choral music education, and is currently the chorus teacher at Maury High School.
John joined the Doorway Singers in fall of 2022. His love for music began in middle school but high school choir was where he really felt at home. He also loves being on stage and you may recognize him from productions at the Little Theatre of Virginia Beach where he played Mr. Green in Clue: On Stage and Nigel Bottom in Something Rotten!
David (Treasurer) joined Doorway Singers for Dickens' Christmas in 2019 and doesn't plan to retire from the group until his vocal chords give out! He started his musical journey in elementary school with the All City Choir, then he was hooked and couldn't wait for more opportunities to perform. He has been part of groups such as Virginia All-State Choir and Senior Honors Choir in high school, and the advanced chorus while studying Vocal Performance at Virginia Tech. In addition, he was a part of Naturally Sharp, an all male A Capella group when they were selected for the Best of College A Capella CD with a chilling rendition of "Wake Me Up" (Google it!). David later became music director for the group and assisted in arranging and recording their CD. Now, he's back in the a capella and choir world, and he's ready to hit the ground running!
Brent is returning to Doorway after a 2-year break. He studied Vocal Performance at Old Dominion University, and has performed with Lyric Opera Virginia, the Virginia Opera, the Virginia Chorale, Virginia Musical Theatre, Theatrics, and more. His notable roles include Jean Val Jean in Les Miserables, Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus, Adam/Noah in Children of Eden, and you can hear him as a hired soloist at First Presbyterian Church of Virginia Beach.
