Festival Description

The Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art is dedicated entirely to adventurous contemporary music. The faculty includes some of the most innovative musicians of our time. These are musicians who have dedicated their lives to commissioning, rehearsing, recording and performing music beyond the cutting edge. Participants will write it—perform it—think about it—and, talk about it. The festival offers three weeks of immersion in recent music that has changed the world. Available studies include Balinese music workshops, improvisation, as well as performance coaching, master classes, music business seminars and more. Composers will have their works performed. Players will perform publicly in ensembles sitting alongside their teachers. There are daily performances in the museum galleries, free and open to the public. And the residency concludes with a six-hour blow-out Marathon Concert featuring performances by the student/faculty ensembles.
