Concerto for Violin, Rock Band and String Orchestra

Violinist Robert McDuffie has been a champion of the core repertoire and an interpreter of the works of the most important popular classical composers of our time. In spring 2016, in collaboration with R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, McDuffie started a new exploration with the world premiere performance of Mills’ Concerto for Violin, Rock Band and String Orchestra. Inspired by the blurred lines between contemporary classical audiences, pop and contemporary music, McDuffie has commissioned a new composition from Mills – one of the most prolific songwriter/composer/collaborators from the world of rock and pop. The concerto will feature McDuffie on solo violin and a four-member rock band led by Mills (bass and keyboard), along with two electric guitarists, a drummer and a string orchestra.
