Baritone Justen Blackstone has been praised for his vocal brilliance, artistic sensitivity, and deep musical understanding beyond his years. He holds a masters degree in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from Westminster Choir College of Rider University. There he studied with mezzo-soprano Laura Brooks Rice and collaborative pianist Dr. J.J. Penna. He also holds a bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from Bob Jones University where he studied with Dr. Susan Kindall.
Because of the nature of his musical degrees, Justen feels comfortable singing on stage, collaborating with another musician from behind the piano, or teaching one of his many vocal students. Justen currently teaches at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA where he gives voice lessons and vocal coachings, directs the Broadway and Opera Workshop ensemble, and plays for recitals and performance classes. He also teaches private voice for DeSales University’s distinguished theatre program in Center Valley, PA. His recent performances include solos in Mass in G (Schubert), Mass in E-flat Major, Op. 5 (Beach), and Requiem Op. 48 (Faure).
