Meet Joanna Pearson

A piano player at age six, Joanna Pearson has had a love for music from a very early age. However, it was a visit from a cellist that came and performed at her school a few years later before she found her true passion. “I fell in love with the instrument’s beautiful sound,” Joanna says. 

Invited to play with the Hampton Roads Philharmonic as a founding member, Joanna is a proud member of our cello section. She enjoys playing all types of music but says chamber music is particularly her favorite. She has also been a 911 Dispatcher for over 15 years.

The Hampton Roads Philharmonic is a group of dedicated and passionate musicians of all ages providing music to Hampton Roads. Our members perform at larger concerts and smaller chamber performances across the region throughout the year. Learn more about our organization, or find out how you can join our orchestra.
