Monday in New York ... Grammy Award winning violin virtuoso Joshua Bell teamed with chef Brian Lewis of the Bedford Post Inn to host an intimate salon and cocktail reception for “Education Through Music,” a non-profit organization with Bell’s Music Unites. Both are dedicated to bringing music instruction to at-risk children at inner-city public and parochial schools who would otherwise have no or limited exposure to the arts.
