Miller Theatre continues its 2023-24 Composer Portraits series with John Zorn at 70: New Masada/Simulacrum
The second of three concerts this season in celebration of the 70th birthday of the New York musical icon
John Zorn at 70: New Masada / Simulacrum
As prolific as he is provocative, John Zorn returns to Miller Theatre, where he and the venue have enjoyed a several-decades-long collaboration. This fall, Miller Theatre celebrates the 70th birthday of this New York icon with three exceptional concerts that explore the many facets of Zorn’s oeuvre, featuring the incredible artists with whom he closely collaborates.
Experience the most extreme organ trio alongside one of John Zorn’s newest ensembles in the same evening. New Masada Quartet freshly interprets classic compositions from the Masada songbooks (with the composer on saxophone) while the genre-defying Simulacrum trio performs in a style that can be best described as “heavy metal…with an organ” (PopMatters).
NEW MASADA QUARTET John Zorn, saxophone Julian Lage, guitar Jorge Roeder, bass Kenny Wollesen, drums
SIMULACRUM John Medeski, organ Matt Hollenberg, guitar Kenny Grohowski, drums
