Internationally-acclaimed cellist Joshua Roman will perform the Dvorak Cello Concerto in B Minor with the BYU-Idaho Symphony Orchestra. As well as being a celebrated performer, he is recognized as an accomplished composer and curator, and was named a TED Senior Fellow in 2015. As artistic director of TownMusic in Seattle, he has showcased his own eclectic musical influences and chamber music favorites, while also promoting newly commissioned works. A native of Oklahoma City, Joshua began playing the cello at the age of three on a quarter-size instrument, and gave his first public recital at age ten. Home schooled until he was 16, he then pursued his musical studies at the Cleveland Institute of Music.
