Beethoven 5th Symphony • Dvorak Cello Concerto
“A cellist of extraordinary technical and musical gifts” (San Francisco Chronicle), Joshua Roman has earned national renown for performing a wide-ranging repertoire with an absolute commitment to communicating the essence of the music at its most organic level. He is also recognized as an accomplished composer, curator, and programmer, particularly in his work as Artistic Director of Seattle Town Hall’s TownMusic series, with a vision to engage and expand the classical music audience. For his ongoing creative initiatives on behalf of classical music, Roman was named a 2011 TED Fellow, joining a select group of next generation innovators of unusual accomplishments who show potential to positively affect the world.
Since the WCAS audience fell in love with Josh in 2012, he has been back to Chicago to collaborate with Anna Deveare Smith on a project entitled On Grace. We're thrilled that this returning artist will grace the stage of Edman Chapel for a new collaboration with Camerata Chicago under the direction of Drostan Hall.
