Joshua Roman, Series Artistic Director

It is with equal parts gratitude and sadness that we announce Joshua Roman’s final season as artistic director of Town Music. We’re grateful for Joshua’s past and present leadership — there’s no one better suited to usher us from one extraordinary era of Town Music to the next.

Joshua Roman has earned an international reputation for his wide-ranging repertoire and his commitment to communicating the essence of music in visionary ways. As well as being a celebrated performer, he is recognized as an accomplished composer and curator. Before embarking on a solo career, Roman spent two seasons as principal cellist of the Seattle Symphony, a position he won in 2006 at the age of 22. Since that time he has appeared as a soloist with symphony orchestras in San Francisco, Seattle, Los Angeles, Scotland, Moscow, and many others.

While Roman leapt in short order from undergraduate at the Cleveland Institute of Music to principal cello of the Seattle Symphony to soloist with major orchestras around the globe, his childhood ambition to compose his own music lay dormant. A series of multimedia collaborations starting in 2013 nudged Roman to go beyond improvising on the cello and to start committing music to paper, and since then he has embraced composing as a key facet of his musical expression. His major works to date include a cello concerto, Awakening, and a large song cycle, we do it to one another.
