photo (2)The piano is Joseph's passion, refuge, and strength. It inspires him the way he seeks to inspire all those who hear him play. The sounds of the instrument covers his soul like a warm blanket the way he hopes to comfort the souls of his audiences. It provides strength when he is weak the way he tries to empower the minds of those who have their own musical dream. His dedication to his musical journey has been extensive, and by no means has it been easy.
Born in Palermo, Sicily, but raised in Philadelphia since age 12, Joseph Rossetti began studying piano as a young child with his opera-singing mother. Honing the skills of sight-reading and playing by ear early on, Joseph’s dedication has paid off, leading him to secure sponsorships to play before many audiences.
With a Master’s degree in Music Performance from Western State University, Joseph is determined to play on stages across the country, and eventually, around the world.  To date, he’s performed locally with the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia at Bryn Mawr College and the West Chester University Symphony Orchestra at WCU. He has also performed in Atlantic City and in New York City at The Dimenna Center for Classical Music.
Joseph feels strongly about empowering young people to pursue their musical passion and donated his time to perform at the Ethel D. Allen Promise Academy in North Philadelphia, where he also held an essay contest, as part of an ongoing effort to give back to the community and promote music appreciation.
To support his piano career, Joseph is self-employed as a piano teacher and in-demand window washer, catering to local businesses. He readily invests his earnings in lessons with piano greats David Oei and Dr. Mark Silverman and studies at The Manhattan School of Music. According to Dr. Robert Ross, Chairman of the Music Department at The Community College of Philadelphia, where Joseph studied and performed, “Joseph is a master of the Classical and Romantic solo piano repertory, with unerring ensemble sense in chamber music and concerti.”
