Béla Fleck's My Bluegrass Heart Tour

feat. Michael Cleveland, Sierra Hull, Mark Schatz, and Bryan Sutton
About this Performer
Over the last four decades, Béla Fleck has made a point of boldly going where no banjo player has gone before, a musical journey that has earned him 15 Grammys in nine different fields, including Country, Pop, Jazz, Instrumental, Classical and World Music. But his roots are in bluegrass, and that’s where he returns with his first bluegrass tour in 24 years, My Bluegrass Heart. “I was kind of surprised, frankly, when I sent out the invite for the first touring ensemble, because everyone I asked said yes!” he said. Fleck’s first road band will spotlight some of the best of the new generation of bluegrass players, mandolin virtuoso Sierra Hull, 10-time IBMA Fiddle Player of the Year Michael Cleveland, along with bassist/multi-instrumentalist Mark Schatz.

Circa "En Masse"

Created by Yaron Lifschitz with the Circa Ensemble
About this Performer
A wild, tender, and savage ride, En Masse presents two visions of humanity at its extremes through circus settings of Schubert’s Winterreise and selections from Schwanengesang, as well as Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring. Glitches and grooves by Swedish composer Klara Lewis are interspersed with Schubert’s exquisite songs of loss and love as a sole tenor and acrobats veer between anarchic energy and exquisite loss. Then Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, with its ecstatic tribal energy, is played live by pianists while acrobats are pitted in a life-and-death struggle between group and victim in this first-ever circus setting of Rite of Spring. The Circa ensemble puts bodies on the line in electrifying explosions of physicality and power. With live music by tenor Robert Murray, and pianists Tamara-Anna Cislowska and Michael Kieran Harvey.
