The “trademark glowing sound, effortless virtuosity, and improvisatory freedom” (New York Times) of Joshua Bell is known and loved worldwide. A musician’s musician, Bell is constantly traveling in his twin roles as solo artist and music director of the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields—his week-long, 2017 residency in D.C. is quite a rarity. In addition to repertoire of beloved classics in this exclusive recital appearance, Joshua Bell and Sam Haywood pay homage to John F. Kennedy’s 100th birthday with the reading of Robert Frost’s poem “Dedication” (written for JFK’s inauguration), read by actor John Lithgow and set to Air by Aaron Jay Kernis, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Music.

This Washington Performing Arts recital is part of Joshua Bell’s residency with the Kennedy Center and National Symphony Orchestra from February 7-12, 2017.
