Ken Vandermark’s Made to Break

New Paths Festival

MacArthur Fellow and Chicago jazz legend Ken Vandermark visits Philadelphia for the first time in over five years to premiere a piece inspired by the Barnes collection with his latest and most radical ensemble, Made to Break. Inspired by elements of Ethiopian music, Dutch group The Ex, the New Music concepts of John Cage and Morton Feldman, and jazz and improvised music history, Vandermark has devised a compositional framework that engages and complements Dr. Barnes’s peculiar personal curatorial philosophy.

*Before the show (7pm), ticketholders are invited to join Vandermark and Blake Bradford, the Barnes Foundation’s Bernard C. Watson Director of Education, for a discussion on Vandermark’s composing practices and how they relate to Dr. Barnes’s curatorial vision.

New Paths Festival has been supported by The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage.
