Béla Fleck returns to Clowes for the world premiere of a piece specially commissioned for the 50th anniversary. Béla Fleck, nominated in more Grammy award categories than any other performer, is now stretching the boundaries of classical music.
Having worked in bluegrass, country, jazz and world music, Béla released Perpetual Motion, in 2001, a classical recording that featured Edgar Meyer, Joshua Bell, Chris Thile and Evelyn Glennie among others. It went on to win two Grammy Awards. Béla now brings a brand new work “Night Flight Over Water” for Banjo and String Quartet performed with Brooklyn Rider.
Join Robin Hopkins, banjoist, for a discussion on the banjo and Béla Fleck at 7:15pm in the Krannert Room. Admission is free with your paid ticket to the event.
