The Museum of Modern Art is not getting into the concert promotion business just yet, but its latest commission has, at least on paper, the components and the pedigree of a pop-music spectacle.

On Tuesday the museum said that it had commissioned Antony Hegarty, the artist and lead singer of the band Antony and the Johnsons, to create and perform a new work called "Swanlights" that will be presented at Radio City Music Hall on Jan. 26. The performance event, which MoMA described in a news release as a "meditation on light, nature, and femininity," will include songs from all four albums by Antony and the Johnsons (including their most recent release, also called "Swanlights") with symphonic arrangements by Nico Muhly, Rob Moose, and Maxim Moston and performed by a 60-piece orchestra.
