Joshua Bell

Jan 29, 2017

Ferguson Hall


With Sam Haywood, piano

After tremendous critical acclaim and a successful concert career, lauded violin prodigy Joshua Bell became a household name in 2007 when his video of playing in a D.C. metro station as part of a Washington Post article on art and context went viral. Since then, Bell’s sublime, thoughtful career as a musician opened the world of classical music to a new generation and galvanized his role as not only a master musician but also as the vanguard of the form. Sam Haywood, piano, will accompany Joshua Bell.
