Joshua Brown received glowing reviews for his debut performance with the Cleveland Orchestra, including "stunning," "brilliantly played" and "spellbinding.” He has gone on to collaborate with dozens of orchestras, performed in concert halls on three continents, and appeared on both radio and television. Additionally, Joshua won First Prize and Audience Award at the 2019 International Violin Competition of Leopold Mozart in Augsburg, Germany, Second Prize and Audience Award at the Cooper International Violin Competition, and Gold Medals at both Fischoff and M-Prize Chamber Music Competitions. More recently, Joshua was named a prizewinner of the 2022 International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.
Joshua earned his Bachelor of Music and is currently pursuing his Master of Music with Donald Weilerstein at New England Conservatory of Music. He previously studied with Almita and Roland Vamos. He is very grateful to be playing a Nicolo Amati violin from Cremona, circa 1635-1640, on extended loan through the generosity of the Mary B. Galvin Foundation and the efforts of the Stradivari Society. Joshua is passionate about reaching and connecting with new listeners and towards that end, maintains a very active presence on his media account.
