New Year! New Hope! New Commissions! On February 21, Bang on a Can presents an entire marathon of PREMIERES! 16 brand new works by 16 pioneering composers. Tune in to hear 4 hours of nonconformist, noncommercial, mind-blowing music. Alvin Lucier! Jennifer Walshe! Matthew Shipp! Ingrid Laubrock! Gabriel Kahane! and many many more.
This concert is FREE! But please do consider purchasing a ticket. That helps us pay more players, commission more composers, and make more music. The pandemic is still here. An entire ecosystem of composers and performers needs our attention, our love, and our financial support. All Marathon performers and composers are participating live and being paid by Bang on a Can. Please help us do that!
