For over forty years, Henry Threadgill has been celebrated as one of the most forward-thinking composers and multi-instrumentalists in American music. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2016, Threadgill has been called “perhaps the most important jazz composer of his generation” by the New York Times. His remarkably agile ensemble Zooid will be augmented by the Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble for a world premiere performance of an expanded and improvising chamber ensemble.
