Acclaimed by the New York Times for his "gorgeous tone" and "physically expressive cues," Joseph Morag has performed extensively as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral violinist. A student of Aaron Rosand, under the prestigious Dolan Prize awarded by Columbia University, Joseph appeared in Alice Tully Hall with the Columbia University Orchestra, under the baton of Maestro Jeffrey Milarsky. Concertmaster of the National Orchestral Institute during its groundbreaking recording of John Corigliano’s First Symphony with Naxos, Joseph was invited to return as soloist and concertmaster under Osmo Vänskä. He also led the inaugural orchestra of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Institute, in addition to appearing with the orchestra as soloist under the baton of Bramwell Tovey. Joseph is concertmaster of the New York Youth Symphony and the Columbia University Orchestra, as well as Vice President of SPEAKmusic, a collective of performers and composers from Columbia University and The Juilliard School. Last season, during the Salzburg Music Festival, Joseph studied with Zakhar Bron at the Mozarteum and gave a solo recital at the Villa Emslieb to great acclaim.

 All events are sponsored by Columbia University's Music Performance Program and are free and open to the public.

Mid-Day Music @ Columbia offers live music to a general audience, following the tradition established by Aaron Warner and Isidor Isaac Rabi, great lovers of music whose memories live on at Faculty House.
