This September, one of New York’s most celebrated figures in avant-garde and experimental music, John Zorn, will turn 60. To celebrate, he’s staging a pair of concerts as part of the Lincoln Center Festival. Tonight’s program consists of two vocal works for an all-female a cappella ensemble and an improvisational set that places Zorn at the venue’s Kuhn organ. Saturday’s performance consists of all of the composer’s string quartets, which have never been performed together before, played by three New York-based ensembles.
