TED
TED (which stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design) has made a name for itself by broadcasting hundreds of free lectures and performances by the most innovative minds in the arts, sciences, humanities and beyond. Former Seattle Symphony principal cellist Joshua Roman was recently chosen as a 2011 TED Fellow. At age 22, Roman was the youngest principal musician in the Seattle Symphony’s history, and he’s been dubbed a “Classical Rock Star” by the media. He left the Seattle Symphony in 2008 to pursue a solo career. In March he performed a duet with LA Philharmonic violinist Robert Gupta (a TED senior fellow) of “Passacaglia,” a piece by Norwegian composer Johan Halvorsen. Filmed for TED before a live audience, the video is a testament to successful musical collaborations and the powerful beauty of classical music.
