Performing on his 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin (worth nearly $3.5 million), Joshua Bell is one of the world's most celebrated violinists. Exclusively available at the Emens Auditorium box office, Ball State Faculty and Staff can buy one regular priced ticket ($35) and get one free for this performance (excludes Gold Circle). Employees must show a valid BSU ID to claim this offer. Regular priced adult tickets are $45 (Gold Circle) or $35. Call (765) 285-1539 for more information.

Often referred to as the "poet of the violin," Joshua Bell 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." Bell's most recent challenge is his appointment as the new Music Director of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, the first person and first American to hold this post since Sir Neville Marriner
formed the first orchestra in 1958.

Today Bell serves on the artist committee of the Kennedy Center Honors and is on the Board of Directors of the New York Philharmonic. He has performed before President Obama at Ford's Theatre and at the White House  and recently returned to the Capital to perform for Vice President Biden and President of the People's Republic of China, Xi Jinping.
