This fall, Miller joins with venues across the city and around the world—from the Met Museum to the Barbican Centre—in celebrating the 60th birthday of one of New York’s most important artists: John Zorn. Miller’s marathon roams widely, exploring notated and improvised music alike, and features an all-star lineup of musicians, every one of them hand-selected by the composer for these performances.

Part 1: Orchestra John Zorn’s dream team orchestra—80 players, at last count—performs some of the composer’s great symphonic works, including his masterpiece violin concerto. Featuring violin soloist Christopher Otto and conductor David Fulmer heading up an entire orchestra of soloists.
