Bang On A Can Celebrates 30 Years
The Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA is underway and runs through August 6th.
The festival is dedicated entirely to adventurous contemporary music. We will spend three weeks immersed in today's most exciting music. Composers will have their new works performed. Players will perform in ensembles sitting alongside their teachers. The Festival includes daily performances in the museum galleries, free with museum admission, and concludes with a six-hour blow-out Marathon Concert performed by the Festival ensembles and special guests.
The Festival also features African and Latin music workshops, electronics and music business seminars, free events in the community, and more. To tell us more, we welcome Pulitzer Prize winning composer and Bang on a Can co-founder, David Lang.
