Show Title

Joshua Bell

with pianist Sam Haywood

Often referred to as the “poet of the violin,” Joshua Bell is one of the world’s most celebrated violinists. He continues to enchant audiences with his breathtaking virtuosity, sheer beauty of tone, and charismatic stage presence that embodies a restless curiosity, passion and universal appeal. Bell returns to the Miossi Hall stage with his touring accompanist, accomplished pianist Sam Haywood.

Pre-show lecture scheduled. 

“Mr. Bell doesn’t stand in anyone’s shadow.” – The New York Times 

“An exhilarating evening of chamber music at its finest … Bell hung wistfully onto the high notes, flexing his musical muscle on the powerful octave double stops. Haywood fit snugly into the texture … never too bold, always assertive.”  – The Birmingham News
