with the HAWAII SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Neil Blaisdell Concert Hall
Saturday, December 7, 8:00 pm and
Sunday, December 8, 4:00 pm
The Hawaii Symphony Orchestra's fifth Fall Season concert will feature Bela Fleck performing "The Impostor," a concerto for banjo and orchestra of his own composition, on Saturday, Dec. 7, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 8, at 4 p.m. Michael Stern will conduct a program that also includes Stephen Hartke's "Pacific Rim" and Copland's Symphony No. 3.
Fleck is a powerful creative force in bluegrass, jazz, pop, rock and world beat and has also made the classical connection. His 2001 Sony Classical recording won a pair of Grammys, including Best Classical Crossover Album, in the 44th annual Grammy Awards. He has been nominated in more musical categories than anyone in Grammy history.
" 'The Impostor' is the culmination of many years of getting up the nerve to see if I could write for banjo and orchestra," Fleck said. It has been said that with names like Bela (for Bartok), Anton (for Dvorak) and Leos (for Janacek) it would seem he was destined to play classical music.
Both concerts will be performed at the Neil Blaisdell Concert Hall. Tickets are available at the Blaisdell Box Office or online at www.HawaiiSymphonyOrchestra.org.
