John Zorn's Sacred Visions

John Zorn's Sacred Visions

“Eerie harmonic layers were built upon the wordless syllables, an austere medieval aesthetic punctuated with colorful contemporary twists...[‘The Holy Visions’] segued from plainchant to more complex polyphony, sounding along the way, sweet, simple and crazed.” — New York Times

Returning to the Metropolitan Museum after a triumphant daylong concert, the edgy and continually inventive composer and MacArthur Fellow John Zorn creates a performance specifically for the Fuentidueña Chapel at The Cloisters. The program features the world premiere of The Remedy of Fortune, a composition for the indomitable JACK Quartet, composed specifically for The Cloisters; the New York premiere of Pandora’s Box, featuring acclaimed vocalist Tony Arnold with JACK Quartet; and The Holy Visions, performed by Jane Sheldon, Sarah Brailey, Eliza Bagg, Rachel Calloway, and Kirsten Sollek.

Two performances:

Saturday, May 30 at 1:30 p.m.
Saturday, May 30 at 3:30 p.m.

Tickets start at $50.

John Zorn’s Sacred Visions will be held at The Cloisters, located in  Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan.
