Jon Siapno '06
In the five years following his debut as a pianist for a new musical at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Jon has pioneered an innovative and energetic approach to music that bridges professional, cultural and educational worlds. A composer, he has degrees from New York University and Columbia University, as well as musical theater experience from working with a Broadway director while on the national tour of Wicked.
The first song Jon ever wrote was a short hymn, while he was a student at SJND.
“Looking back, I was fortunate to have been surrounded by the guidance and mentorship of so many brilliant teachers and artists during my time at St. Joe’s,” he said. “They were vigilant in recognizing my creative potential and tireless in making real this outrageous artistic venture of mine.”
