Recently it was announced that Joshua will be the featured soloist for the debut performances by the National Youth Orchestra of the United States of America (NYO-USA). The major new initiative will, beginning in summer 2013, bring together the most talented young orchestral players, ages 16–19, from across the United States. Under the baton of conductor Valery Gergiev, Joshua and the orchestra will perform Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Following a two-week residency at Purchase College, State University of New York, the NYO-USA will make its debut at Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center, followed by an international tour, including stops in Moscow, St. Petersburg, and London. In addition to the Tchaikovsky concerto with Mr. Bell, the orchestra’s concert program will include a new work by young American composer Sean Shepherd, co-commissioned by Carnegie Hall for NYO-USA, and Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10.
