BELA FLECK: HOW TO WRITE A BANJO CONCERTO follows banjo trailblazer Bela Fleck through one of his most challenging musical journeys so far – into the world of the symphony orchestra. When Bela is commissioned to compose a major concerto for banjo and an 80-piece symphony orchestra, possibly the first of its kind, he begins down a path unlike any other. A very intimate look at the process of composition and collaboration featuring Earl Scruggs, Chick Corea, Edgar Meyer, Chris Thile, Zakir Hussain, Abigail Washburn, and other close musical friends of Bela's.
