If it can be played on a violin, he’s played it all. Such a claim is believable when considering the brilliant career of Joshua Bell. A child prodigy, Bell went on to become one of the great virtuosos of the orchestral realm, performing at Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center and great stages all over the world. Bell is nothing less than a classical music star whether as soloist, as part of a chamber music ensemble or as conductor. Yet, even a celebrity has his down-to-earth side, and OK Mozart will bring it out of the maestro once again. Bell returns to the international music festival to perform with the Amici New York Orchestra at Bartlesville Community Center on June 18. Gustav Meier will be guest conductor. Bell will also play an afternoon show June 19 at Rose State Performing Arts Center in Midwest City as part of the OK Mozart OKC Series. For more, go to www.okmozart.com.
