Béla Fleck to Perform Concerto for Banjo and Orchestra

World premiere confirmed for September 22-24 in Nashville

Béla Fleck will present the world premiere of his “Concerto for Banjo and Orchestra”—one of the first ever written for the instrument—with the Nashville Symphony on September 22-24 at Schermerhorn Symphony Center. To be performed by Fleck on his vintage 1937 mahogany Gibson Mastertone banjo, the “Concerto” was commissioned by the Nashville Symphony. “Concerto for Banjo and Orchestra” will be the centerpiece of the orchestra’s opening concerts in the 2011/12 SunTrust Classical Series.
