WHO WE ARE AND OUR MUSIC
Justina is the principle violinist in Sounds of Joy, who started her musical journey and love of sharing music at the age of 4. She was first asked to perform at a church wedding in Grade 10 of her high school year, and her talent to pick songs to fit the mood of the event and ability to adapt to different performance environments has helped her clients feel at ease on their wedding day. Aside from performing at weddings and events, she has been actively performing in classical orchestras, musicals, operas, film recording sessions, and collaborations with other artists. She also promotes her love for music at her music studio teaching violin, piano, and ukulele.
Justina's main partner in Sounds of Joy is her twin brother, Christopher, who provides a lovely harmony and bass line on the viola. They both attained their Bachelor of Music and Performance from the University of Toronto, and have worked with a group of like-minded musicians on various occasions. Together, they are a dynamic duo constantly performing new music and genres.
