Joseph Kreines, Conductor at Treasure Coast Symphony, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Artists for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the field of musical performance.
Mr. Kreines started playing music at the age of six years old and being an avid radio listener, he was able to develop perfect pitch and apply that skill to his conducting. Encouraged by his aunt and uncle in learning and by his second piano teacher, Julian Levittan, he soon discovered his affinity for music after excelling in music competitions at a young age. Mr. Kreines began to pursue music formally at the University of Chicago, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in 1955 and a Bachelor of Arts in music in 1956. In 1977, he completed additional post-graduate study and received a Master of Music from the University of South Florida. In order to keep ahead of developments in the field, he maintains affiliation with the Music Educators National Conference, the Florida Orchestra Association, and the Florida Bandmasters Association.
With a career based on his love for music, Mr. Kreines entered the field as a conductor for the University of Chicago Symphony from 1957 to 1959 and then worked as the associate conductor for the Florida Symphony Orchestra from 1961 to 1965. From 1965 to 2003, he excelled at the conductor for the Brevard Symphony Orchestra, an associate conductor for the Florida Orchestra, and a conductor for the Treasure Coast Symphony. Also acting as a consultant in the industry, Mr. Kreines is the author of “Music for Concert Band,” the composer of the American Song-Set, and a transcriber of works for band, orchestra, and brass choir. In recognition of his achievements, he is the recipient of many plaques for his work as a clinician conductor for ensembles across Florida, made All-State Band in school, and was named a lifetime member of the Florida Band Masters Association, from whom he was also honored with a Role of Distinction in their Hall of Fame.
