SIX NONSTOP HOURS OF LIVE STREAMING MUSIC!
May 3, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT
“Bang on a Can means a lot of things to us. It means live performance in front of enthusiastic audiences, which none of us can really have right now. It means music-curious people rubbing elbows with each other, in packed concert halls, talking to each other about the role that music plays in their lives, which we can’t have now either. But it also means supporting a community of artists, commissioning new work from composers, providing live paid performance opportunities to amazing musicians, and introducing listeners worldwide to music that can change their lives. Those are things we can do now! And they are things we need now.
We are all waiting for the world to heal, but until it does, we all have to do what we can We will start by hosting a LIVE Bang on a Can Marathon on Sunday, May 3. Six hours of uncompromisingly adventurous, searching music, with brand new works commissioned especially for the day, played by some of the most amazing performers on the planet. Please join us!” – Michael Gordon, David Lang & Julia Wolfe
