John Zorn, genius

Last month, the MacArthur Foundation handed out 25 new $500,000 grants to 25 new MacArthur Fellows. These are the grants commonly known as MacArthur "genius" grants. One of the recipients was composer and musician John Zorn. Past MacArthur Fellows include composers Charles Wuorinen, Milton Babbitt, John Eaton, Osvaldo Golijov, John Harbison, Conlon Noncarrow, George Perle, Ralph Shapey and others.
