Joe Goering soloed with the Kansas City Symphony at the age of sixteen after winning the Regional Competition for Young Performing Artists. Playing in the Lyric Theatre, Joe played Saint-Saens’ First Cello Concerto in A Minor under the baton of Timothy Hankewich. 

Mr. Goering has continued to perform for audiences. He was featured in the Artists of Tomorrow’s program at the Bowdoin International Music Festival in 2013.  He premiered Noam Faingold’s Prelude for Cello and Piano with Daniel Rorke and also performed music of Shostakovich.  Music festivals are an important part of Joe’s life and include appearances at Meadowmount, Encore, Bowdoin, St. Lawrence String Quartet Seminar, Domaine Forget, Atlantic Music Festival and Toronto Summer Music Festival.  His summer festival teachers include Hans Jorgen Jensen, Melissa Kraut, Orlando Cole, Stephen Geber, David Ying and David Requiro.  He has also performed publicly with acclaimed string musicians like Paul Coletti, Pedja Muzijevic, David Hetherington, David Louie, and Jonathan Crow.

Joe has a Bachelor and Masters degree from Lynn Conservatory in Boca Raton, Florida where he studied with David Cole. He continued his studies in Canada by earning a Performance Certificate from Mount Royal University in Calgary, Alberta. In addition, he received an Artist Diploma from The Glenn Gould School of Music at The Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, Canada where he studied with John Kadz and Desmond Hoebig. Joe has also collaborated with the most distinguished artists of our time including masterclass appearances with Lynn Harrell, Raphael Wallfisch, Johannes Moser, Mischa Maisky, Matt Haimovitz and Richard Aaron.

After completing his education, Joe began his career as an orchestral musician and was a member of Sudbury, Thunder Bay and Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestras in Ontario, Canada.  After several years of performing, Mr. Goering transitioned into teaching full time.  He is currently on faculty in the preparatory department at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida and has devoted his time to teaching young cello students in South Florida.  He plays on a cello from 1899 by the Italian maker Stefano Scarampella and a Victor Fetique bow.
