Bang on a Can Marathon

Sat, July 28 - 4-10pm Bang on a Can Marathon with Steve Reich
More musical "happening" than concert, the Bang on a Can Marathon closes out the Festival in suitably audacious style. The eclectic program includes works from our 2018 guest composer Steve Reich, along with works by Andy Akiho, Gregg August, Michael Gordon, Jonathan Bailey Holland, Gyorgy Ligeti, Missy Mazzoli, Finola Merivale, Steve Reich, Dobrinka Tabakova, Iannis Xenakis, Julia Wolfe, and Pamela Z. And join us for a special pre-show extravaganza with the Orchestra of Original Instruments, led by Mark Stewart and performed by all the festival fellows. Share the Marathon experience with hundreds of adventurous listeners, dozens of brilliant performers, great food and drink and of course, big bold art EVERYwhere.
