In 2002, Joshua performed all the violin solo work for the film Iris, composed by James Horner of Titanic fame. Recently Joshua had the opportunity to perform another of Horner’s compositions – the song “My Heart Will Go On.” The song is one of the tracks on Songs From the Silver Screen, the third full-length CD from 12-year-old soprano prodigy Jackie Evancho.
Joshua Bell took time off from rehearsal with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra to meet with 250 SCPA students who had come to school even though they had the day off. The students had seen Joshua’s recent appearance on “Dancing with the Stars” and knew of the viral video of the “Subway Experiment” in which he performed in the Washington Metro station.
Joshua kicked off the Seattle Symphony’s fall season with a performance of Bernstein’s Serenade after Platos Symposium. Veteran classical journalist Melinda Bargreen noted in the Seattle Times:
