Chick Corea & Béla Fleck Duet Sept. 30

August 26, 2015

Co-presented with Blues Alley & Washington Performing Arts, Chick Corea and Béla Fleck, two master songwriters, musicians, and band leaders come together for a genre-busting pairing of piano and banjo on Wednesday September 30, 2015, starting at 8:00 pm at The Music Center at Strathmore.

With a mix of jazz and pop standards, crossing a myriad of genres, from jazz, bluegrass, rock, flamenco and gospel, this casual, intimate evening with two legends from different musical worlds combines classic tunes from Corea and Fleck’s catalogs with music from their Grammy-winning duet album, The Enchantment.

  • Two of a kind and perfect together! Jazz joins banjo in this eclectic pairing
  • With 63 nominations, Corea is the fourth-most-nominated artist in the history of the Grammys
  • Fleck’s stardom is no accident. He bears the names of musical giants—Béla (like Bartok), Anton (like Dvorak), and Leos (like Janacek)

The Music Center at Strathmore is located at 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda, MD.
