Joseph Conyers 

April 29, 2016 Today's guest is the ever ebullient Joseph Conyers, assistant principal bass of The Philadelphia Orchestra, founder of Project440 and the newly appointed director of the Philadelphia All City Orchestra.  In this episode Joseph reminisces about dancing to the clothes washer, auditioning and winning the Philadelphia Orchestra job, and his halcyon days of being a certified storm tracker and dreams of becoming a meteorologist.

Joseph H. Conyers was appointed assistant principal bass of The Philadelphia Orchestra in 2010. He joined the Orchestra after a one-and-a-half year tenure with the Atlanta Symphony, three-and-a half years as principal bass of the Grand Rapids Symphony, and four summers as a member of the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra. Excerpt from the PO website
