Richard “Joshua” Reynolds is a Cleveland, OH born New Yorker who grew up with a passion for singing. He began to take music seriously in 6th grade while attending the Choir Academy of Harlem. The music bug never left him and he went on to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance from Boston University in 2011. After completing his undergraduate studies, Reynolds earned a Master’s degree in Arts Administration, also from Boston University in 2013. Since then, he has taught music both in and out of the classroom, sung professionally, and composed original music. As a person who benefitted from arts programming in his youth, Reynolds is excited to nurture and create opportunities for youth to use art as expression and positive self-development.
