Out now is the album Musical Gifts from Joshua Bell & Friends, featuring a who's who of pop, jazz and classical music artists, including Plácido Domingo, Renée Fleming, Michael Feinstein, Gloria Estefan, Alison Krauss, Kristin Chenoweth, Chris Botti, Chick Corea, Branford Marsalis and a cappella group Straight No Chaser.
The idea behind the album? "On Musical Gifts, I imagine friends coming to my home during the holidays and joining me on songs that celebrate the warmth, beauty and magic of the season," says Joshua Bell. Well, this is exactly what's happening on November 26! While waiting for Thanksgiving and then Christmas, Joshua Bell invited his closest friends – including Renée Fleming, Michael Feinstein, Frankie Moreno and other superstars on the music scene – to join forces with him and play at his personal apartment in New York. This exclusive concert is the first ever broadcast from a musician's home in the United States and will be streamed live on medici.tv only. A definitely not-to-be-missed event!
Executive Producer of the event: Adrienne Arsht. This program is made possible through the generosity of Adrienne Arsht.
