Saturday

Bela Fleck with S.C. Philharmonic

Bela Fleck is a favorite among bluegrass fans, but he’s becoming a darling of the classical music circuit by pairing with orchestras on banjo concertos. He plays “The Imposter,” a new concerto, with the orchestra as it concludes its 50th season. The program, which also includes works by Berlioz and Dvorak, begins at 7:30 p.m. Details: scphilharmonic.com
