Joe Mitchell, bass, is originally from Belen, New Mexico. He found his love for the performing arts while singing in choir, playing the trumpet and F horn in band, and performing in plays and musicals throughout middle school and high school. Joe is the choir teacher at Tony Hillerman Middle School and Volcano Vista High School, within Albuquerque public schools. He feels blessed by the opportunity to impact his students the way his teachers and mentors have for him. When he isn’t making music, Joe loves spending time with his husband, John, and their friends and family. Joe is delighted to be back making music with his students, his fellow singers in Coro Lux, and the New Mexico Philharmonic.
