Joel Kabakov

Joel Kabakov has maintained a multidisciplinary role in the arts, as composer, pianist, guitarist, educator, author and music industry executive. Retreating to the Northwest after over a decade of directing Yamaha Foundation’s advanced music curricula, he now serves as Chair of Arts and Humanities at Columbia Gorge College. “Europatopia” is the performing arts ensemble Kabakov recently formed in Oregon which explores historically and ethnically diverse repertoire.

As Graduate Prize Fellow and doctoral recipient in composition at Harvard, Joel taught chamber music, counterpoint, music history and independent piano studies. Collaborations with the Boston Symphony, Boston Ballet, Harvard Dance Center and Young Audiences Inc. ensued as did chairmanship of composition at the Boston Conservatory. His present pianistic passion is the ever unfolding “Melodian and Keyboard Explorations” which combines technique, theory, and a “foretaste for composition”. Purchase here!
