Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

    MacArthur “genius” George Lewis brings an eclectic background—as a performer with Anthony Braxton and Roscoe Mitchell, a professor and scholar at Columbia, and a pioneer of computer music—to his work as a composer. A former curator at the iconic downtown multi-arts venue The Kitchen and a longtime member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, Lewis’s work explores and pushes boundaries, incorporating fresh and wide-ranging influences. ICE is joined by percussionist and conductor Steven Schick in this program, featuring a brand new work written especially for them.
