I've heard that Barcelona is one of the world's best food cities, and I'll be back at L'Auditori de Barcelona this week. What are some spots that I can't miss?

Had a wonderful time performing Ravel and Saint-Saëns with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra this weekend, and especially appreciated speaking with students after rehearsal.

I’m heartbroken to hear about the tragic loss of Anna Lucia Kim, an esteemed colleague at Primo Artists and cherished member of her school, church, and the music community. Although Primo Artists is part of my management team, I sadly never had the opportunity to meet Anna, who has been working for Primo as an intern. Anna Lucia Kim passed away Friday at the age of 24, and I cannot imagine the grief her father and sister are going through. I'm sharing a link to a page that includes a fundraiser that was set up to help enable her family to get through this terrible tragedy.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! Wishing everyone a happy and healthy holiday. This year I'm in St. Louis, celebrating with family before three concerts of Bruch. The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra holds a special place in my own history – I made my Carnegie Hall debut with them back when I was 17!

It's always a great experience performing with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields – our longstanding partnership fosters an atmosphere of growth and an attitude of camaraderie expressed in performance. This past week in Moscow, exploring the city and performing at a new venue, was a testament to the relationship we've built through the years. Read more about our recent recording and history in Strings Magazine. Спасибо Москва!

Wishing a happy and safe Halloween to all! Throwback to a very early Bell family Halloween – pictured here as a pirate with my sister Toby the princess.
“Every day the violin responds differently. There are some days I just want to sell it, and then the next day, something changes. All of a sudden I’m just so in love with it. You have to keep falling in love for years.”
A recap of my conversation with Elvis Mitchell at the 2018 LA Film Festival – a fantastic event despite the technical difficulties.

She has that quality that draws you in...and these words still ring true! Larisa Martínez- Soprano and I are so happy to perform together today in honor of Anna Netrebko at The Metropolitan Opera Guild luncheon. A throwback to the 2007 BBC Proms when Anna sang "Ah! non credea mirarti" from La Sonnambula.

It was such a pleasure to reunite with John Corigliano and violinist Christoph Koncz (who played the role of young Kaspar Weiss in The Red Violin) last night. Join us tonight, Thursday, and Saturday at New York Philharmonic for more #RedViolin!

Performing the score to The Red Violin live is such a powerful, immersive experience because I get to see the film while I play and hear the full orchestra behind me.
A quick chat with Forbes before the concerts of The Red Violin with the New York Philharmonic. Tonight through October 20!

I want to notify all of you that there have been incidences of an imposter using my name and photos and messaging my friends and fans on social media. Any account besides my official pages (this page on Facebook and @joshuabellmusic on Twitter and Instagram) is an impersonator. Neither I nor any member of my team will ever reach out on any account (including Facebook messenger and Google Hangouts) to request funds, and tickets to performances can be accessed via the ticket links on my website. Unfortunately, social media impersonation is more and more common, but we are doing our utmost to keep these fake accounts closed and focus on the music.
All my best,

It was an honor to be a guest (and student!) this week at the Education Through Music TechLab at M.S. 529 in the Bronx. It was so exciting to see what ETM is doing at the intersection of music and technology, and see these young, bright minds at work.

In North Carolina to perform with the North Carolina Symphony and Charlotte Symphony tonight and tomorrow and I'm saddened by the devastation happening in the area.

Music education has the power to develop creativity, expression, confidence – not to mention the positive impact on test scores – and it's the greatest gift we can give to a young person. Join me in supporting #musiceducation and the great organization Education Through Music and check out their work in this new virtual reality tour narrated by the great Meryl Streep.
