From amazing child prodigy to breathtaking virtuoso, Joshua Bell has performed with every major orchestra worldwide. He first came to national attention at the age of 14 in a highly acclaimed orchestral debut with Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra. A Carnegie Hall debut, the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, and a recording contract further confirmed his presence in the music world.
In 2007 he was famously involved in a social experiment for the Washington Post that saw him don a baseball cap instead of his black tuxedo, taking his precious $3 million Stradivarius violin into the Washington Metro to play at rush hour. Nobody noticed him apart from a few harried passengers.
