Bang on a Can 2011 -- 10th Annual Festival
July 13 - July 30, 2011
For over 10 years the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA has presented thousands of hours of music and hosted hundreds of multi-talented musicians. Join us for a three week long birthday party featuring live music every day: daily gallery recitals, free community performances, kids events, two major concerts, and more. New this year!

Inspired by the art on display the Festival’s faculty and fellows perform in the galleries twice a day. The earlier recitals at 1:30 can pop up anywhere, prepare to be surprised! The 4:30 recitals are more structured but still casual and fill the galleries with extraordinary music. You can take in the whole performance or just a portion. Make sure to put the special festival composer recital held in the Hunter Center at 4:30 PM on Monday, July 25, on your calendar. .
