The new season of Fontana will be virtual, says executive director David Baldwin. Each hand-picked group will record a live-to-tape performance in the city in which they're based. Baldwin and Cara Lieurance preview each group, from VOCES8, and Brooklyn Rider, to the Castalian and Dudok String Quartets, with some musical selections and biographical details.

Béla Fleck has single-handedly turned the banjo into a virtuoso solo instrument that can comfortably play with jazz combos, African trios, string quartets and orchestras. In 2010 upon completing his first concerto for banjo, The Imposter, he followed up with a companion piece for banjo and string quartet, Night Flight Over Water, which he recorded with the adventurous string quartet, Brooklyn Rider.
