In addition to his orchestral career, Kosower is active as a soloist, performing with the Orchestre de Paris, Hong Kong Philharmonic, China National Symphony Orchestra, the National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan and the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra. In the United States, he's appeared with the symphony orchestras of Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Seattle and more.
