Classical Next


Each month we recognize one student on air during KBACH’s Classical Next initiative, celebrating the future of classical music. Tune in each month to hear our interview with this month’s winner and if you know a student who deserves recognition, nominate them today!

Joshua Lee

Joshua Lee is our January recipient of Classical Next! He’s 12 years old and has been playing violin for 5 years. He says, “whenever I make music, it helps me relax and my stresses from school and everyday life disappear.” His favorite musical memory was after a performance of Pablo Sarasate’s Introduction and Tarantella. After the recital, a senior gentleman gave him a star made of dollars because he loved the performance. He plays with the Phoenix YouthSymphony Orchestra (PYSO) and is also the concertmaster of his school orchestra at BASIS Ahwatukee. Congratulations to Joshua Lee!
