Joshua Bell Returns to The Soraya

  • by

Sensational violinist Joshua Bell returns to The Soraya April 4 for his ninth performance leading the renowned Academy of St. Martins in the Field, for an evening of exquisite music-making. 

Bell is one of the most celebrated violinists of our era and has performed with every major orchestra on six continents in his 30-plus year career. He was chosen to succeed the immortal Sir Neville Marriner as Music Director of the revered Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in 2011. 

With a career spanning over 30 years as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, conductor and director, Bell’s interests range from the repertoire’s hallmarks to commissioned works, including Nicholas Maw’s Violin Concerto, for which Bell received a Grammy® award. He has also premiered works of John Corigliano, Edgar Meyer, Jay Greenberg, and Behzad Ranjbaran.

Committed to expanding classical music’s social and cultural impact, Bell has collaborated with peers including Chick Corea, Wynton Marsalis, Chris Botti, Anoushka Shankar, Frankie Moreno, Josh Groban, and Sting. 

The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras, renowned for fresh, brilliant interpretations of the world’s greatest orchestral music. Formed by Sir Neville Marriner in 1958 from a group of leading London musicians, the Academy gave its first performance in its namesake church in November 1959. Through unrivaled live performances and a vast recording output – highlights of which include the 1969 best-seller Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons” and the soundtrack to the Oscar-winning film Amadeus – the Academy quickly gained an enviable international reputation for its distinctive, polished and refined sound.

Tickets for Joshua Bell range from $40 to $70, or $1,500 for the performance and gala evening honoring former CSUN President Dr. Jolene Koester, the individual most responsible for The Soraya. For tickets visit thesoraya.org. The theatre is located on the campus of CSUN at  18111 Nordhoff Street in Northridge.
