The Man with the Violin

Family Concerts >

Violinist Joshua Bell brings his own true story to life for children and adults alike in this special Family Concert, based on the children’s book The Man with the Violin by Kathy Stinson. Inspired by the time Bell famously took his instrument into the Washington, DC subway for a free concert — where only seven out of thousands of commuters stopped to listen — he recreates the heartwarming story that reminds us all to stop and appreciate the beauty around us.
