Mandolin Virtuoso Chris Thile to Play Schwartz Center for Performing Arts, 11/2

GRAMMY Award-winning mandolinist Chris Thile returns to Atlanta Saturday, November 2, 2013 at 8 p.m. for a sold-out show as part of Emory University's 2013-2014 Flora Glenn Candler Concert Series.

Thile's performance at the Schwartz Center for Performing Arts will draw from his recently-released album "Bach Sonatas & Partitas Vol. 1"while also exploring his own compositions, which encompass progressive bluegrass, classical rock, and jazz creating a distinctly American canon and a new musical aesthetic for performers and audiences alike.

Hailed by London's The Independent as "the most remarkable mandolinist in the world," and a 2012 MacArthur Fellow (also known as the "genius award") Thile is the founding member and lead vocalist of Punch Brothers, a progressive bluegrass band.

This fall, Thile embarked on an international solo tour, which includes stops throughout the U.S. and Europe, including London, Barcelona and Dublin, Ireland.

He received a GRAMMY Award in 2013 for his work with Yo-Yo Ma, Edgar Meyer, and Stuart Duncan on "The Goat Rodeo Sessions."
