This event has ended.

Born in Mexico City, the child of Spanish refugees, Julio Estrada (b. 1943) is a product of cultural crossroads. Influenced in equal part by Xenakis’s abstract theories and Mexican music history, by his studies of mathematics and acoustics, Estrada has published widely and been the recipient of numerous awards, including the internationally respected French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. Join us as we close out the Miller season with this kaleidoscopic Portrait, culminating with the world premiere of a new commission.
