The ever-popular Academy of St Martin in the Fields, under the musical direction of renowned soloist Joshua Bell, returns to the Celebrity Series for the thirteenth time! This storied, conductor-less ensemble is one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, well known for its inspired and inspiring interpretations of great orchestral music. The program includes works by Florence Price and Mendelssohn, as well as Dvořák's Violin Concerto, highlighting Bell, a superstar instrumentalist whose spectacular gifts as a soloist have earned him the reputation as “one of the most imaginative, technically gifted and altogether extraordinary violinists of our time” (The Washington Post).

“At the end of the day, we’re just looking for good music. For over 60 years, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields has provided us with exactly that.”


“But while there's no doubt Bell's phenomenal technique and tone justifies his superstar status, he also shows an uncommon degree of self-effacement… Bell's relationship with the orchestra has become symbiotic.”
