Joshua Brown, Violinist

This Monday I am very excited to be off to the Washington DC area for two concerts!! I will be playing the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto twice with the OneWorld Symphonic Festival.

The Festival is bringing together musicians from around the world to demonstrate unification and promote understanding of cultural differences. I’m really excited to be part of this since I believe music is a language that knows no boundaries and can really connect people in a special way.

The first concert is July 5 in Reston, VA at the Reston Pavilion (my first open air concert!), and the second concert is July 6 in College Park, MD at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center's beautiful Dekelboum Concert Hall! I really hope all my Washington DC friends can make it to one of the concerts!
