Season Overview Tickets

'Mr. Bell doesn't stand in anyone's shadow.'
– The New York Times

With a career spanning almost four decades, GRAMMY Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell is one of the most celebrated artists of his era. Bell has performed with virtually every major orchestra in the world, and continues to maintain engagements as a soloist, recitalist, chamber musician, conductor and as the Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

Bell has collaborated with peers including Renée Fleming, Chick Corea, Regina Spektor, Wynton Marsalis, Chris Botti, Anoushka Shankar, Frankie Moreno, Josh Groban, and Sting, among others. In 2019, Bell joined his long-time friends and musical partners, cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Jeremy Denk, for a ten-city American trio tour.

Bell has been nominated for six GRAMMY awards, was named 'Instrumentalist of the Year' by Musical America, deemed a 'Young Global Leader' by the World Economic Forum, received the Avery Fisher Prize, and was named an 'Indiana Living Legend' in 2000. He has performed for three American presidents and the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. Bell also participated in President Barack Obama's Committee on the Arts and Humanities' mission to Cuba on an Emmy-nominated PBS Live from Lincoln Center special; Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba, celebrating renewed cultural diplomacy between Cuba and the United States.
