Josh Duffee has been a member of the Muscatine Symphony Orchestra for over a decade.
His earliest music memory or experience is when he started taking piano lessons in 1987. He was in the 2nd grade, and his parents wanted to enroll him in piano lessons since he kept asking them if he could learn to play the piano. Jeff Martin was his piano instructor, and the two have been performing together in the First Baptist Church Praise Band together since 2004 (he’s on piano and Josh on the drumset). “It’s fun we still get to perform music together!”
Josh’s favorite composer(s) would include the following: Jean Sibelius, Edward McDowell, Ferde Grofe, Peter Bernstein, John Carpenter, Danny Elfman, Michael Giacchino, John Williams, John Barry.
“There have been so many memorable moments with the MSO. A few for me would have to be my first performance with the MSO in 2007; Performing music for the film “The Immigrant” for Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony with Dan Kamin; The Delicious Combination concerts of Frank Sinatra and Benny Goodman. “
