Banjo virtuoso and composer Béla Fleck will be back in Sewanee July 16–20 during the final week of Sewanee Summer Music Festival. Events will showcase Fleck’s newer works, including the world premiere of a work for banjo and chamber orchestra on July 19 and a performance of his critically acclaimed work, The Imposter, with the Sewanee Symphony on July 20.

On July 16 at 8:30 p.m., there will be a showing at the Sewanee Union Theatre of the documentary “Béla Fleck: How to Write a Banjo Concerto,” introduced by remarks from Fleck.

Fleck has been called the premiere banjo player in the world. His remarkable performing and recording career has taken him all over the musical map and on a range of solo projects and collaborations. The last time Fleck was in Sewanee, he performed with Chick Corea in early 2013as part of the Sewanee Performing Arts Series.
