John Zorn, 2006 MacArthur Fellow, composer, arranger, producer, and multi-instrumentalist presents a series of 10 chamber works in select permanent collection galleries at LACMA on Saturday, May 2, from 10 am to 3 pm in celebration of the museum’s 50th anniversary.

Over the course of five hours, ensembles consisting of solo instrumentalists, duos, vocal trios, and string quartets perform selections from Zorn's vast catalogue in spaces shared with works of art. JACK Quartet, Kenny Wollesen, Dave Lombardo, William Winant, Tony Arnold, and others perform a different set every half hour in the Ahmanson and Hammer Buildings, creating poignant counterpoints with compositions hand picked by Zorn himself for their sonic and ethereal resonance with works by Tony Smith, Jackson Pollock, Paul Klee, and others.
