Hello Classical Music Lovers!
Join us for another evening at Valley Performing Arts Center, CSUN to hear world acclaimed violinist Joshua Bell with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields chamber orchestra of which he is also the director.
"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, tone of sheer beauty, and charismatic stage presence. His restless curiosity, passion, universal appeal, and multi-faceted musical interests have earned him the rare title of "classical music superstar." Recently named the Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Bell is the first person to hold this post since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958."
"The Academy of St Martin in the Fields is an English chamber (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chamber_music) orchestra (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orchestra), based in London. Sir Neville Marriner (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neville_Marriner) founded the orchestra as The Academy of St.-Martin-in-the-Fields in London as a small, conductorless (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conductorless_orchestra) string (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/String_instrument) group. The original group numbered 11, all male. Their name comes from Trafalgar Square (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trafalgar_Square)'s St Martin-in-the-Fields (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St_Martin-in-the-Fields) church, where the orchestra gave its first concert on November 13, 1959."
