The virtual concerts in the Live from Columbia series are filmed live and premiered throughout the 2021-22 season at millertheatre.com/live-from-columbia. On-demand streaming will be available immediately after.
This fall, as campus life and society relaunch, art plays a leading role. Livestreamed from the Miller stage, Arturo O’Farrill & the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra perform an exciting program.
In 2019, Columbia University launched the Year of Water, an interdisciplinary investigation of water in all of its social, political, cultural, economic, and environmental complexities. As part of the initiative, the School of the Arts commissioned the composer, musician, and seven-time Grammy Award-winner Arturo O’Farrill to write a new work. Mundoagua receives its long-awaited world premiere, paired with another work by O’Farrill, Gulab Jamón, both performed by the Afro Latin Jazz Orchestra, “one of the best jazz orchestras in existence" (The New Yorker).
