One of the finest and most-recorded chamber orchestras ever, the Academy of St Martin in the Fields Orchestra continues to uphold its signature sound and celebrated musicianship. Violinist Joshua Bell became its music director in 2011, the next step in his nearly three-decade- long partnership with the Academy as conductor as well as guest soloist. This marks Joshua Bell’s Regional Arts debut in his new role.
