Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at 8:30 pm
Modern music icon John Zorn returned to St. Bart’s with a performance of The Hermetic Organ Office Nr. 15 (2017), a new chapter in his epic organ improvisation, which has been praised by Lou Reed as one of “culmination and conquest.” His Candlemas Eve for two flutes and vibraharp was also offered on the eve of the church’s feast day of Candlemas.
