Closer to George Crumb at 3 PM: An informal, up close look at Crumb’s music - with film, projection, discussion, demonstration and performance, led by stage director and designer Jim Findlay and composer David Lang. Gallery Recital featuring Crumb’s music at 4:30 PM. Concert of The Music of George Crumb 8 PM: The world premiere of Jim Findlay’s staging of Crumb’s music performed by the amazing fellows and faculty of the Bang on a Can Summer Festival.
