Mr. Goering has continued to perform for audiences. He was recently featured in the Artists of Tomorrow’s program at the Bowdoin International Music Festival.  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.  He has performed publicly with acclaimed string musicians like Paul Coletti, Pedja Muzijevic, David Hetherington, David Louie, and Jonathan Crow.

Joe is currently on faculty in the preparatory department at Palm Beach Atlantic University. He is looking forward to teaching more cello students online and at his studio in West Palm Beach, Florida. He plays on a cello from 1899 by the Italian maker Stefano Scarampella.
