Esteemed American composer, musician, educator, recording artist and philosopher Anthony Braxton will celebrate his 69th birthday with a series of premieres, performances and events encompassing every facet of his decades-long career, from improvisational pieces with small ensembles to full-scale orchestral works and operatic compositions.

The season will pair rare performances of past compositions with premieres and recordings of new work by the prolific MacArthur Fellow, Doris Duke Performing Artist and recently-named NEA Jazz Master, simultaneously paying tribute to Braxton's career so far and looking forward to what's to come.
