Joseph Conyers is a bassist in the Philadelphia Orchestra. He performed April 2 in the Savannah Music Festival as part of a chamber orchestra lead by world–renowned violist Philip Dukes. Conyers is one of the younger musicians in the group but as the only bass, he plays a huge part. "It's really integral to everything that goes on. So actually I feel... It's very, it's a role of great responsibility,” said Conyers. “Everyone likes to look at the violin, but if the bass player's out of tune or behind or if something's not lining up, it doesn't quite work." Even in practice, it's clear everyone in the orchestra leads a life dedicated to music.
