A highlight of the Asheville Chamber Music Series 2022/23 season is the performance of world-renowned banjoist, Béla Fleck, performing his original work, Night Flight Over Water, with members of the Opal String Quartet. “Mr. Fleck can lay claim to the title of the most popular living banjoist, having done much to push the instrument beyond the bluegrass terra firma into jazz, classical and beyond.” — The New York Times. Founded in Asheville in 2006, the Opal String Quartet is the only local ensemble of its kind performing masterworks of the string quartet repertoire and collaborating with living composers to premiere new works.
