Violinist Joshua Bell Honored At Gala Benefitting Music Education
A star-studded lineup of music education supporters turned out on Nov. 28 to honor GRAMMY winning violinist Joshua Bell and benefit music education in Los Angeles schools.
Hosted by "Mozart In The Jungle" star Malcolm McDowell, the event featured performances by Bell, Botti, and Childs, as well as Prince and Michael Jackson collaborator Judith Hill, L.A. Philharmonic pianist Joanne Pearce Martin, and students from James A. Foshay Learning Center and ETM-LA. The evening also honored veteran music teacher Vincent Womack.
There's no better gift to any young person than music education, and I am continually blown away by the amazing work of @ETMLosAngeles. What an honor to share the stage with these amazing students, educators, and artists. pic.twitter.com/qo8A5TLCqB
