Joy Schreier is praised by Plácido Domingo as an “orchestra at the piano” and the The Washington Post as a “responsive accompanist” and “ideal support” at the piano. She has been presented in recital at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Merkin Hall, the White House, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Corcoran Gallery, the National Gallery of Art, the National Museum for Women in the Arts, the National Portrait Gallery, the Phillips Collection, the Cosmos Club, Strathmore Hall, the Embassies of Austria, Australia, Bulgaria, Germany, Italy, Korea, Poland, Russia, Taiwan, Anderson House on Embassy Row and recital halls throughout the country.
Internationally, Schreier has performed in England, Scotland, Wales, France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. She has appeared with the Marilyn Horne Foundation, the Vocal Arts Society, Partners for the Arts, Philadelphia Lieder Society, and was a featured performer at the 2016 New Music Gathering. Schreier’s concert engagements include a sold-out Carnegie Hall debut with soprano Danielle Talamantes at Weill Recital Hall, a recital series with mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard for the Marilyn Horne Foundation, and Carmina Burana performed with the Washington Ballet at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. Following the release of Confessions, her CD with soprano Laura Strickling, Schmopera lauded Schreier as “an indispensable accompanist. She is either preternaturally intuitive or has achieved perfect communication…perhaps a bit of both.”
An avid chamber musician, since 2010 Schreier has performed as official pianist of the Washington International String & Voice Competitions at the Kennedy Center. She has served as official pianist for the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions as well as Assistant Conductor at the Washington National Opera and coach for the Domingo-Cafritz Young Artist Program. She earned her Doctorate in Accompanying and Chamber Music in 2003 at the Eastman School of Music under Dr. Jean Barr where she was the recipient of the Barbara Koeng Award for Excellence in Vocal Accompanying.
