Once is not enough! For six straight hours on May 3rd Bang on a Can tried to make us all forget our current isolation with a marathon concert of amazing composers and performers from around the globe. We had a blast doing it, but we noticed something as soon as it was over. We are all still isolated! Listeners everywhere are still hungry for connection! An entire ecosystem of composers and performers still needs our attention, and our love, and our financial support! So we are having another marathon on June 14th.
Six more hours of uncompromisingly adventurous, searching music, including 10 brand new works commissioned especially for the day – 10 radically innovative composers premiering 10 mind-blowing new works played by 10 unstoppable virtuosi. Plus a lot of other incredible stuff. We are all sheltering in place, just like you. But we really need to be together. For a few hours on June 14th we will be. Please join us. – Michael Gordon, David Lang & Julia Wolfe, co-founders and co-hosts
