Joshua Bell has been renewed as music director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields for three more years.

He says: ‘The Academy is an incredible group of musicians, and they are like family to me – our tours together are always highlights of my year.  Having served as the Academy’s Music Director since 2011, I’m thrilled that we’ll be continuing our relationship for another three seasons.’

He will not be required to busk at any London tube station.


  • Mark Henriksen says:

    Bell is amazing, really, and there appears to be no end to his energy and willingness to share his gift. Always a pleasure to hear him.
