Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Josh Aronson has directed more than 500 commercials, television shows and music videos, and has made several award-winning documentaries. Aronson is also a concert pianist and regularly plays chamber music in New York and at the Telluride Musicfest, the chamber music festival he founded in 2002 with his wife, violinist Maria Bachmann. Aronson's film, Orchestra of Exiles, tells the inspiring story of Bronislaw Huberman, the Polish violinist who saved hundreds of Jewish musicians from the nazis and founded Israel's first orchestra.
