Joshua Bell + Debussy’s La Mer – SOLD OUT!

Doors: 6:45 PM

Concert: 7:30 PM


Peter Oundjian, conductor

Joshua Bell, violin 

In the first evening of a two-part preview performance, 2023 Artist-in-Residence Joshua Bell performs selections from Elements, an unparalleled work for violin and orchestra in five movements, each written by a different acclaimed composer. In this concert, Bell performs the first three movements of Elements: “Fire” (composed by Jake Heggie), “Air” (Jennifer Higdon); “Water” (Edgar Meyer); “Ether” (Jessie Montgomery); and “Earth” (Kevin Puts). The program closes with a beloved favorite by Debussy; the musical brushstrokes of La Mer create Impressionistic sketches of the sea.


(A co-commissioned project with five major orchestras, Elements will receive formal premieres around the world beginning in September 2023. Hear it at the Festival first!)
