Béla Fleck has virtually reinvented the image and sound of the banjo through a remarkable legacy that has taken him all over the musical map. Rhythm, Raga & Rhapsody will celebrate the music of Fleck’s career, including his New York premiere of “Rhapsody in Blue” performed with an orchestra, conducted by Eric Jacobsen. The multi-artist night features My Bluegrass Heart, tabla master Zakir Hussain, pianist Bruce Hornsby, and woodwind player Anat Cohen.

The COLLABORATIONS series presents cross-cultural musical explorations and collaborations. This series often explores ways in which the music of artists from one culture have influenced the music of another culture, or the music of seemingly widely varying cultures can be strikingly similar or complementary.
