Josh Lee Viola da Gamba

Helicon Performances

Symposium 117 - “Sonata, what do you want of me?”

Josh Lee’s viol playing has been called “a tour-de-force” (Vancouver Classical), and has garnered him acclaim from audiences across five continents. Founder of Ostraka, Josh is increasingly sought after as a soloist and chamber artist, appearing with Portland Baroque Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Musica Pacifica, Orchester Wiener Akademie, Les Délices, Pacific Music Works, Boston Early Music Festival, Four Nations, and Seattle Symphony. Praised as “a master of the score’s wandering and acrobatic itinerary”  (Cleveland Plain Dealer), Josh’s performances have been heard on Performance Today, FluxFM (Berlin), Harmonia, and Österreichischen Rundfunk (Vienna). Outside of early music Josh frequently collaborates with indie band Radical Face, performing in Australia, New Zeland, Japan, and across Europe this season. Josh lives by the ocean in Jacksonville Beach, FL.
