Improvisational virtuoso JOSH CONDON is a pianist already “making waves” throughout the music world and on several prestigious cruise lines. Schooled in the disciplines of both classical and jazz music, Josh brings a high-energy, charming charisma that has enraptured audiences worldwide.

Josh has performed as the onboard Music Director for the musical “Rock of Ages” on Norwegian Cruise Line, and has produced and directed several shows in upstate New York, including “Have Yourself a Swingin’ Christmas!” at the world-famous Corning Museum of Glass Auditorium Theater, featuring internationally known jazz vocalists Nancy Kelly and Michael Civisca; as well as “Tale as Old as Time—Disney in Concert” where he conducted a 150-piece orchestra and chorus from Ithaca College.

Inspired by the great musical minds such as Leonard Bernstein and Andre Previn, Josh draws upon the styles of the great improvisational pianists such as Oscar Peterson, Art Tatum, Herbie Hancock, Franz Liszt, Sergei Rachmaninoff and many others to create entertaining and exciting music with informative and fascinating insight into how it can touch all of us.
"His show received incredible reaction/standing ovation. All cruise long I had guests approach me about how great his show was. With all this success I asked him to do another solo Piano recital and this is where he shined again and proved that he is one of the most talented young musicians today.
His show is unique and has a different energy to it.
I would highly recommend Josh Condon"
