A pleasure to join Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra this past weekend at Heinz Hall for the closing of their season. I hope next time I'll be able to bump into my name-twin, Josh Bell of the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Bringing it way back to 1988 to my first album, "Presenting Joshua Bell." I'm proud of some of the unconventional musical selections I made for this debut album...not sure what to think about the white-button-down-tucked-into-jeans look though! #FlashbackFriday

In 2016 I had the pleasure of opening the Česká filharmonie's 121st season, and this year I am joining them for their season closing concerts. I love being back in the beautiful city of Prague and playing at the historic Dvorak Hall. Two more performances of Saint-Saëns' Violin Concerto No. 3 tonight and tomorrow.

I am truly honored to have been named the recipient of the 2019 Glashütte Original MusicFestivalAward, and am deeply grateful to Glashütte and to the Dresdner Musikfestspiele and its director, Jan Vogler. It is a great privilege to be counted alongside the many eminent musicians who have received this award in the past. We share a collective commitment to music education, and there are few things that bring me more joy than sharing music with the next generation. With that in mind, I’m pleased to share that I will be donating the award to five organizations whose work in music education is very close to my heart: Education Through Music, Turnaround Arts, Special Music School - Kaufman Music Center, Indiana University Jacobs School of Music and Academy of St Martin in the Fields education program. Glashütte's extraordinary gesture will surely impact countless young people for years to come.

Jan Vogler and I met in 1989 at Marlboro and I look forward to joining him again in Dresden this week for another concert of Dvořák with the Camerata Salzburg. Is the 30-year challenge a thing?

Joining Andrew Manze and the Camerata Salzburg for concerts this week in Salzburg, Dresden, and Vienna. Performing one of my favorites, the Dvořák Violin Concerto, on a program with Sibelius and Beethoven.
Playing again with the Camerata Salzburg reminds me of our time recording the Beethoven and Mendelssohn Violin Concertos with Sir Roger Norrington.

Performing in beautiful San Diego on Sunday, and bringing the Bruch Violin Concerto. The Violin Concerto No. 1 is Bruch's most beloved work, and for good reason! The slow movement, in particular, is one of the most beautiful things written for violin.

Throwback to last month's The Man with the Violin family concert with the Seattle Symphony. One of the best parts of my job is getting to play for kids and seeing how they respond so genuinely to music. Here's to a future where all kids experience the arts in their daily lives! #MusicMatters #SupportMusicEd #ThrowbackThursday

While in Paris, I caught up with my great friend, conductor AND pilot extraordinaire Daniel Harding...inside his super-high-tech flight simulator! He let me fly from Charles de Gaulle to Orly...my landing left us 'virtually' alive but perhaps a bit banged up!

A lesson on persuasion from TED-Ed – how logos, ethos, and pathos can influence perception, and even change the response to a violin performance!
