Biography
Joshua Bell

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

Bell’s 2021–22 season highlights include leading the Academy at the 2021 BBC Proms and on tour in the US; returning to The Philadelphia Orchestra for a play / conduct program; and appearing with the Minnesota Orchestra and Boston Symphony Orchestra, in addition to the New York Philharmonic. Highlights in Europe include performances with the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, Russian National Orchestra, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestre de Paris, as well as touring as soloist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra.

Bell has been named 2010 Instrumentalist of the Year by Musical America and a 2007 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum, and has been nominated for six Grammy awards. He received the 2007 Avery Fisher Prize, and the 2003 Indiana Governor’s Arts Award and a 1991 Distinguished Alumni Service Award from the Jacobs School of Music. In 2000, he was named an “Indiana Living Legend.”

In August 2021 Joshua Bell announced his new partnership with Trala, the tech-powered violin learning app, with which he will work to develop a unique music education curriculum. He maintains active involvement with Education Through Music and Turnaround Arts, which provide instruments and arts education to children who may not otherwise experience classical music firsthand.

Bell has performed for three American presidents and the justices of the Supreme Court of the United States. He participated in former president Barack Obama’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities’ first cultural mission to Cuba, joining Cuban and American musicians on Joshua Bell: Seasons of Cuba, the 2017 Live from Lincoln Center Emmy-nominated PBS special celebrating renewed cultural diplomacy between Cuba and the United States.
