“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.
John Zorn’s Sacred Visions will be held at The Cloisters, located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan.
Tickets to this event include Museum admission.
