Dr. Joseph Holt

Now in his 11th season as Artistic Director of the Choral Artists of Sarasota, Dr. Joseph Holt enjoys a wide-ranging career as conductor, pianist, chamber musician, arts administrator, educator, arranger and interviewer.

Before coming to Sarasota, he served for 20 years as principal pianist with the U.S. Army Chorus in Washington, D.C., performing for U.S. Presidents and other dignitaries. He was Associate Conductor for the Choral Arts Society of Washington for 15 years and led them in the annual Family Christmas Concerts at the Kennedy Center.

In addition, Holt is Artistic Director of the popular Artist Series Concerts of Sarasota, engaging performers for their various series. SILL's Music Mondays is proud to continue to work in collaboration with the Artist Series Concerts in bringing several artists each season for full recital appearances as well as appearances on Music Mondays.

In addition to his duties as co-host, Holt also serves as pianist for many of our guests on Music Mondays.
