Described by the New York Classical Review as "one of the most exciting young musicians on the classical scene", Khari Joyner has a following both nationally and abroad as a versatile soloist, chamber musician, and ambassador for the arts. He has made numerous guest appearances with orchestras and ensembles across the world, including two recent performances with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. In addition, he has given many cello masterclasses and lectures at notable institutions, most recently at Stetson University and Oberlin Conservatory. Joyner received the 2017-2018 career grant from the Leonore Annenberg Fellowship Fund. He has also performed for Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, the latter for which he gave a private performance in the Oval Office. An active chamber musician and one of the founding members of the Altezza Piano Trio, Joyner also has given performances as a guest at the Ritz Chamber Players, Chamber Music Society of Central Virginia, Highlands-Cashiers Chamber Music Festival, Fontainbleau Music Festival, and on WQXR as a part of the Midday Masterpieces series. A graduate of Juilliard's prestigious Doctor of Musical Arts program, he continues to serve as Teaching Assistant to his former teacher Joel Krosnick, and also pursued a mathematics concentration in an exchange program with Columbia University, while studying in Juilliard's Accelerated BM/MM program. Joyner has also collaborated with choreographers and actors, and was even considered for the role of the young Nathaniel Ayers as part of the Hollywood film The Soloist.
