Joe Marchio can’t help but put together the most interesting ideas. In this new series for the curious, Joe will tackle a wide gamut of musical subjects, from the beginnings of music theory to early opera to cagey, 20th century music; from Haydn and Chopin to Bernstein and Williams; all this and more seasoned with some programmatic and folk music and with a big dash of artificial intelligence thrown in for good measure.
In this new series, Joe will answer some of your musical questions that you’ve never dared to ask about before and also ruminations that might be circling in your brain:

Owner, Host, & Director
In 2008, the seed of Artful Journeys was planted in her brain, when Joan brought together all of her life's passions, her love of music, an affinity for the beautiful things in life, and an ability to organize events to give birth to Artful Journeys, a program of art education trips for the soul.
Joan was born and raised in the apple country of the Hudson River Valley in New York; her father was a gentle, very tolerant, educated land surveyor, and her mother was the efficient business administrator and home engineer. The youngest of four children, Joan was encouraged to pursue anything she wanted, but also to do her best. Sometimes that was very difficult, especially succeeding three very accomplished siblings.
