Joseph Glaser

Described as “a voice to watch out for” by CBC’s Bill Richardson, Joseph Glaser’s music draws inspiration from instruments and the people who play them to create meaningful dialogue on stage. Currently pursuing a Master’s degree at McGill University in Montreal studying underJean Lesage, his thesis explores the relationship between physical gesture and instrumental sound. Joseph holds a degree from the University of British Columbia where he studied under Jocelyn Morlock, Dorothy Chang, Keith Hamel and Stephen Chatman.

Joseph has had his works performed by the Toy Piano Composers, the Gryphon Trio and the Amici Chamber Ensemble among others. Joseph is currently Composer-in-Residence with the Toronto based chamber collective, Musica Reflecta.
