Composer / Arranger Details:

Joseph Pastor earned a Bachelor of Music degree in jazz percussion from Southern Illinois University in 2000. Since then his career has been as varied as his interests in music are. One night he may be playing jazz vibraphone, the next night he could be found in a musical theater orchestra, or playing for an ensemble such as the St. Louis Philharmonic, or as a blues drummer, or playing bass guitar for a rock band. He has recorded with Rock `n` Roll Hall of fame inductee Johnnie Johnson, with Juno Award winner Kenny "Blues Boss" Wayne, as well as with St. Louis blues legends Bennie Smith, Rich McDonough, and the wunderkind bluesman Marquis Knox. Mr. Pastor has also toured with some of the above mentioned as well as with New Orleans harmonica player Rockin` Jake, international pop artist Javier Mendoza and others. In 2002 Joe held the position of drummer with the Legends In Concert show in Branson MO.

Joe stays busy as a music educator as well, seeing on average 25 students weekly as well as being on the staff at DeSmet Jesuit High School, the Webster Community Music School and Washington University in St. Louis

In the past several years Joe`s compositions have been performed by the ensembles at Webster University, Washington University in St. Louis, University of Missouri, and Southern Illinois University as well as in a handful of high school programs. Mr. Pastor is looking forward to the upcoming premiers of some of his works by the percussion trio Axiom. He is immersed in concert music, having begun his college years as a classical music major, and as a former member of the prestigious St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra while studying timpani with Rick Holmes and percussion with Tom Stubbs, both of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra. Joe Pastor`s ideal in composition is to write contemporary music containing original thought while managing not to alienate the listener. This doesn`t mean to dumb down the music, just to write things that regular people can grasp. Influences are drawn not just from the greats of the past, but also from recent composers such as Krystov Penderecki, Gordon Stout, Joseph Schwantner, Steven Mackey, Alberto Ginastera and Bela Bartok, to name a few.
