Joshua Azenberg

Percussion Principal, Season 50 | Orchestra

Joshua, who was also a member of the NYYS Orchestra in the 44th and 45th Seasons, is the Principal Percussionist of the 50th Anniversary Season. Joshua studied at the Mannes Pre College Program and went on to graduate from the New England Conservatory and is now finishing his first year of a Master’s Degree at Mannes.

Asked about what he values about being a part of the NYYS Orchestra program, Joshua shared “Besides the wonderful repertoire NYYS plays, having the opportunity to work with JD Gersen, the orchestra and the members of the percussion section is something I have learned a lot from and appreciate. It is not often one comes across such great colleagues and, more importantly, new friends.”
